Featuring Rick Buckler, the legendary drummer of The Jam, this is your chance to witness history in the making. Feel the rhythm of A Town Called Malice, and get lost in the soulful sounds that defined a generation, as he recalls all his memories, plus stills, videos, and music. It's a must for all fans of The Jam.

Formed in 1972 at Sheerwater Secondary School in Woking, Surrey, The Jam kept the tradition of three-minute, hook-driven British guitar pop alive, providing a blueprint for generations of bands to come. Active during the late1970s and early 1980s, the powerhouse three piece comprised of singer, guitarist Paul Weller and drummer Rick Buckler, and later bassist Bruce Foxton. The Jam had 18 consecutive UK Top 40 singles from their debut in 1977 to their break-up in December 1982, including four number 1 hits. They released six studio albums and one live album. When the group split up, their first 15 singles were re-released, and all placed within the top 100 on the UK charts. The band drew upon a variety of stylistic influences over the course of their career, including 1960s beat music, soul, rhythm and blues and psychedelic rock, as well as 1970s punk and new wave. The trio was known for its melodic pop songs, its distinctly English flavour, and its mod image.

Join Rick for a night that'll make you feel like you're in the heart of the Mod revival, as he takes you back to 1977 and guides you right through to 1982. Transport yourself to the days when vinyl records were king, and Fred Perry was the uniform of cool. It's all about the music, the style, and the timeless appeal of The Jam.

Raise a glass with fellow music enthusiasts, share stories, be part of an audience Q&A with Rick, and celebrate the iconic tunes that have stood the test of time. This is a night that's not just about the music; it's about culture, camaraderie, and a whole lot of soul.

The Jam have become a massive part of British music culture - 1982 was the end of an era, but the start of an enduring legacy with The Jam.

There will be a book and memorabilia signing at the end of the show.
