Stuart Griffiths / Tues Sept 10th

Stuart Griffiths recently released his latest book, Pigs Disco (Ditto Press). We got a copy of it here at Miniclick Towers and decided straight away we wanted to get him back to do a talk on this project for us. The book brilliantly mixes his photographs, writing and drawings  of Stuart’s “account of life in the Paratroop Regiment in Belfast during the Troubles, drug use in the British Army and ex-soldiers getting involved with the nascent rave scene” (text courtesy of Ditto Press). It’s bound to be a very interesting night.

For this evening, Stuart will be in discussion with top photographer, previous Miniclick speaker and all round good man, Ewen Spencer.

Tuesday September 10th, 7pm (doors at 6pm). Free Entry at The Old Market.
