About

Get ready to pull up your leg warmers and scramble your Rubik’s Cubes, as the exciting new exhibition, I Grew Up 80s is coming to The Atkinson!

You’ll travel through the cultural landscape of 1980’s Britain through the eyes of a child – revisiting the vibrancy, quirkiness and innovation that defined the decade.

Discover over 200 iconic treasures – from BMX to Betamax, Dirty Dancing to Donkey Kong, Thompson Twins to Transformers.

If you grew up in the 80s get ready to exclaim “I remember that!”

The exhibition is curated by Matt Fox and is drawn from his personal collection of 80s memorabilia.

 

Did you have a Polaroid Camera, Kodak Ektralite, Canon AE-1?… We want to see your iconic 80s photos; the fashion, the hair, the memories! Tag us on social media or email your photos to info@theatkinson.co.uk. We will display our favourites in the galleries.
