Trev's 21st 1963 1963

2 mins United Kingdom

It's the early 1960s and time to twist again. Join Trev and his friends as they celebrate his 21st birthday in the living room at home. Party-goers play vinyl records and perform 'the twist' dance craze. This fun film is also a snapshot of multi-cultural life in London and among the guests there are a mix of fashions from traditional saris to hip skinny ties.

Context: This film is from the collection of Redbridge Museum, Local Studies and Archives, a member of the London's Screen Archives Network.

London’s Screen Archives enables Londoners see their past come alive on film. Managed by Film London, we are a unique network of historic film collections that cares for, collects and screens heritage film across the city. Together we preserve London’s rich film heritage from feature films to home movies, public information films, newsreels, and records of the capital’s many different industries.
