Northern Soul: Young Soul Rebels
Crown and Mitre Hotel

Borderlines Carlisle Book Festival

Thursday 29 September to Sunday 9 October 2016

Borderlines Book Festival aims to establish and sustain an annual celebration of the written and spoken word in Carlisle, Cumbria.

We aim to establish the festival as a focus for literary excellence by attracting high quality speakers, nurturing and showcasing local writing talent; providing new opportunities for local people to experience literature in direct, accessible and dynamic ways; and helping to foster literary skills within the community.

Stuart Cosgrove presents an intimate story of northern soul, Britain’s fascinating underground musical scene. Explore the iconic clubs that made it famous – The Twisted Wheel, Wigan Casino, Blackpool Mecca – not to mention Newton Aycliffe Youth Centre. From the bootleggers and collectors to the impact of amphetamines and the rise of Thatcherism, Young Soul Rebels sweeps across fifty years of British life and places the northern soul scene in a social context with erudition and passion.

Stuart Cosgrove is a BAFTA award-winning television executive with Channel 4. He was a fanzine writer on the northern soul scene and worked for the music paper Echoes before becoming media editor with the NME. In 2005 he was named Broadcaster of the Year in the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards.
