The Birth of the Fan

Twiggy celebrates the 60s, the decade that saw the rise of the pop fan along with the Beatles and TV programmes like Ready Steady Go!

Twiggy celebrates the 60s, meeting skiffle musicians, fans of The Shadows, Liverpudlians who frequented the Cavern Club at the height of Merseybeat, Beatles devotees, Ready Steady Go! dancers, mods, lovers of ska, bluebeat and Millie Small, and fans of The Rolling Stones.

Unearthed pop treasures include a recording of John Lennon's first ever recorded performance with his band The Quarrymen.
