Rock's Diamond Year
In conjunction with the Ealing Club Community Interest Company, we are running a community history project, exploring the role of West London in the birth of Rhythm and Blues.
Celebrating Rock’s 60th Birthday, from the formation of the Rolling Stones and the heyday of the British Invasion to the spawning of the Reading Festival, we are producing a book that recounts the music history of the London clubs that were the engine rooms for British rock n roll.
The Rolling Stones, the Who, The Faces, The Yardbirds, Cream and the Bluesbreakers are amongst the many acts who performed on the London club circuit at venues such as The Ealing Club, The Crawdaddy Club, The Marquee, The 100 Club, and the infamous Eel Pie Island Hotel.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to take part in a variety of roles, from project management to oral history and archive digitisation. To find out how you can volunteer, head over to our Get Involved page.
