Live discussion with some of the key women who were there – including Julie Felix, Carol Grimes, Jenny Spires and Jill Drower – will be followed by a screening of the searing Dope(1968, 90 mins).

Dave Monk A remarkable book – excellent and compulsive read – with the odds heavily stacked against her, Carol’s determination to make it as a singer would make a great film if it could capture the underlying theme of changing times from an era that was almost recognisable as Victorian to the transformation that was rock’n’roll driven by the post-war generation.
