Dennis Morris, the legendary photographer who has worked with Bob Marley, The Sex Pistols and many others was travelling through Southall en route to an assignment and was inspired to stop and document the town in the early 70′s.

The Southall Story were privileged to have some of his images from ‘Southall: A Home from Home’ and a selection of the images opens The Southall Story exhibition on the Spirit Level at the Royal Festival Hall.

The Southall Story at the South Bank – Spirit Level
Wednesday 7 April 2010 – Tuesday 11 May 2010

The Southall Story created by Shakila Maan, Kuljit Bhamra and Ammy Phull with Cathy Woolley and Michael McMillan is finally coming together.

Southall is re-created with a sense of a ‘Time Tunnel’ where we go back to the 1950’s and explore an extraordinary history, both cultural and political.

Southall is a town that has welcomed new communities throughout the last century, enabling them to excel and influence both the social and political structures of Britain.

The Southall Story at the South Bank

The Southall Story has been invited by the South Bank Centre to create a month long exhibition at the South Bank’ Spirit Level, otherwise known as the Yellow Room.

The exhibition features the work of artists from Southall including the works of the Southall Story team that includes film maker and writer Shakila Maan, the renowned composer Kuljit Bhamra MBE and photographer, Ammy Phull.

The Southall Story is a walk through time charting the history Southall from the 50’s onwards. Live performances, installations, music, film and photography bring drama, comedy, tragedy and romance to the South Bank audience.

Other artists invited include Gurinder Chadha, Mohinder Bhamra, Abdi Karim, Poko from Misty in Roots. Invitations have also gone out to the punk band The Ruts, and The Southall Story have their fingers cross that they will grace the exhibition with their presence. Also invited are the Progressive Writers Associations and community groups such as The Monitoring Project, Southall Black Sisters, Peoples Unite, The National Association of Asian Youth and many more.

The exhibition has been pencilled in for the first week of April 2010 and will run throughout the month with talks and workshops.

We will post confirmed dates on this Blog very soon. Alternatively, you can contact the South Bank Centre for further information.

Welcome to The Southall Story Blog!

This is your page to contribute to The Southall Story. Join us to celebrate the achievements of this unique town. This special place has welcome new communities and new ideas from food, music, literature, fine art, theatre and film.

Please feel free to contribute to the Blog and look out for postings of events and festivals that The Southall Story project is bringing to the public this year alone!

Our events so far include the launch of the project on 24th April at the Dominion Centre. Attendance is with invitation only.

Wednesday 17 June at the British Library, The Southall Story brings to the public an event entitled ‘Music and Life’ between 6.30 and 9.00

The London community of Southall has made a phenomenal but under acknowledged contribution to UK music, arts and politics. By the mid 1970s its record shops became not only source of a fabulous range of South Asian music but also key social gathering places. The riots of 1979 released a new freedom and confidence among young Brit Asians and encouraged the flowering of Bhangra: a musical fusion that spread from the corner shops to massive international popularity. A screening of For the Record: the social life of Indian vinyl in Southall (Dir, Kuldip Powar 2008) is followed by an insightful and inspiring celebrity discussion chaired by composer/producer Kuljit Bhamra, exploring the story of Southall through its remarkable musical history. Plus a foyer exhibition of photographs, Indian musical instruments and bookstalls.

In November 2009, The Southall Story has been invited by the South Bank Centre to work with them to create a three day mini festival that includes music, comedy and poetry. We will announce more details as the details become clearer.

The Southall Story looks forward to an active dialogue with you! To comment just starting typing below….
