Special Event: Rock around the Frock
Saturday 8 July
Join us at the Archive to experience the glamour and rock'n'roll of the 1950s.
The 1950s: Glamour came bouncing back and M&S embraced the optimism of the decade bringing new fabrics and the New Look to the high street.
Join us for a day celebrating this remarkable decade
- Learn to jive with rock’n’roll dance classes from the wonderful Swing Dance Leeds.

- Discover unseen 50s fashions with our display of archive garments
- Enjoy special screenings of our fantastic 1950s cinema adverts... complete with popcorn!
This event is free and everyone is welcome, and we'd love to see your own 1950s outfits, so please dress to suit the decade if you'd like to!
This is a free event and there's no need to book, just drop in between 11am and 3pm.
