Dave Haslam book event with guest Jez Kerr (ACR) - SOLD OUT


In his new small format book, Strawberry and the Big Apple: Grace Jones in Stockport, 1980, Dave Haslam explains a seemingly unlikely scenario; the day in 1980 when glamorous jet-setting Grace Jones visited post-industrial Stockport to meet A Certain Ratio, with a view to working together. Worlds colliding!

Dave’s special guest for this event is Jez Kerr (A Certain Ratio). Together they will discuss the evolution of A Certain Ratio, and their current renaissance. How New Order’s visits to New York clubs inspired the Haçienda. And share insights into Tony Wilson, Martin Hannett, and, of course, the genius that is Grace Jones.

It’s the 8th book in Dave’s small format ‘Art Decades’ series - subjects have included Sylvia Plath, Keith Haring, and vinyl record collecting.

Doors at 7, event starts 7.30pm. Books and ACR releases will be on sale, and the event will conclude with a signing session.
