Whether you were a mod, goth, hippy or raver, your generosity funds our crucial taskforce sourcing, preserving, and celebrating outstanding collections documenting Britains unique social history from the 1950s to present day.

A Museum of Youth Culture

A non-profit organisation with over 20 years experience dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the rich history of British subculture, YOUTH CLUB Archive believes in youth culture as a positive force for self expression and social change.

As the world's stomping ground for self expression, music and creativity, London’s streets are paved with the history of youth culture. From the Punks on the King’s Road in Chelsea, the trendsetting musicians on Denmark Street of Soho, the hipsters in the alleys of Shoreditch, the Abbey Road Studios, Vivienne Westwood’s SEX shop, to the legendary Shoom club that gave birth to the revolution of dance music.

The Museum of Youth Culture will tap into the rich fashion, music, art and social history that animates London's cultural legacy. The Museum will allow people to discover and become inspired by the unique energy that makes London the birthplace of youth and subculture.The museum will feature an extensive education and volunteer programme, workshops, studios, events spaces, permanent and guest exhibitions, a cafe and gift shop.
