The nineties was the decade when British culture reclaimed its position at the artistic centre of the world. Not since the ‘Swinging Sixties’ had art, comedy, fashion, film, football, literature and music interwoven into an explosion of national self-confidence.
But it was also an era of false promises and misplaced trust, when the weight of substance was based on the airlessness of branding, spin and the first stirrings of celebrity culture.
Musician turned award-winning author, Daniel Rachel brings to life the Cool Britannia age – when the country united through a resurgence of patriotism and a celebration of all things British – and together with Salon London will be exploding, revisiting and reliving those years.
21 November. Central London location, doors open 7pm. Tickets are £15 or £30 with Daniel’s brilliant new book, Don’t Look Back In Anger: The rise and fall of Cool Britannia, told by those who were there.
