Discover the ‘pre-history’ of London’s famous Soho Poly Theatre.

'Pop and Politics' is a specially curated exhibition celebrating the relationship between Pop and Politics.

This event is part of 'Digging Deeper: Art, Music and Memory at the Soho Poly', which is, in turn, part of the nationwide Being Human festival. Adding to this celebration, the University of Westminster is also hosting two other events:

On Monday 18 November, join award-winning poet Dr Hannah Copley for a lunchtime exploration of music and memory in a zine workshop in the venue’s revived ‘Arts Workshop’. 

In honour of its early incarnation as a folk club, come and disrupt your day on Thursday 21 November with a lunchtime gig by Martin Stephenson, one of the UK’s most perceptive and best-loved songwriters (see more info below). This will be the first live concert in the iconic basement space since the last ‘Polyfolk’ performance in 1970. Book your free place.
