This year marks the 40th anniversary of punk – a genre that profoundly changed the British cultural scene, particularly in cities like Portsmouth.
To celebrate punk’s major influence on British culture and to support a new generation in discovering the history of punk in Portsmouth, The Portsmouth Cultural Trust has been awarded a £30,900 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The money will help the Trust to deliver a project called ‘Provincial Punk in Pompey: investigating and celebrating 40 years of Portsmouth’s musical history and heritage’.
Students taking part in the Punk Project have been making initial plans for the Punk exhibition, as seen in their Pompey Punk blog below.
