Lancaster Rewind Festival: 1972

Lancaster Rewind Festival is a new event for the city turning the clock back 50 years to reflect on how Lancaster changed. We will be showcasing some of the longest standing businesses in the city, highlighting our heritage, how buildings have changed, and remembering the music of 1972 from the likes of Elton John and Ziggy Stardust.
.
We will also be teaming up with HPA Chartered Architects who will be curating an exhibition of images of Lancaster from 1972 alongside photos which recapture the same view today.
.
The event will offer something for everyone and will highlight our wonderful city and how it has changed from 1972 to the present day.
An action packed programme of nostalgia, film and music is planned, with more details to be shared nearer to the event, but for now ‘Save The Date’ and be ready for a journey back to Lancaster 1972!
