The next edition of St John’s Speaker Series is approaching rapidly, so if you are wondering why the next speaker declared 1971 to be rock’s golden year, then sign up soon.
Music expert, journalist, and publishing industry analyst David Hepworth will explore this question when he visits St. John’s as part of the Speaker Series on Tuesday 11 February.
Mr. Hepworth has been instrumental in the foundation of many popular music magazines, but may be best known as co-presenter of the BBC broadcast of Live Aid on 13 July 1985.
David will take us on a journey through the history of rock. In his book 1971: Never A Dull Moment, which is about to be made into a film, he makes a strong case for 1971 being a crucial and influential year. Which artists were most influential? Which albums most notable? Join us on 11 February for a ride through 1971’s rock and roll history.
As part of this evening, you’re also warmly invited for some drinks and snacks at the St Johns reception before and after the event. Signed copies of the book will also be available to purchase from partner Waterstones during the evening.
This event will begin at 6:30 PM and St. John’s offers entrance for all students for free. Adults are asked to pay a small fee of 15€, which includes the reception. You can reserve your seat now via Eventbrite by following this link.
