Archive On Tour
The full archive is on tour and returns to Coventry in October 2014! 

Supporting the revival of  Bob Eaton's 2 Tone musical "3 Minute Hero" at The Belgrade Theatre, the Burbidge Gallery have asked to exhibit the images shot on 1980 Dance Craze tour.

All photos have been scanned and hand printed from small original film prints and some atmospheric new blow-ups added from contact sheets!

The archive then moves to Dorset in November supporting the Specialized Ska Music project, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK.

It's rumoured that the tour will end at 2-Tone Central Cov early next year…..
