1963, the year the Sixties truly started to swing.

1963 was an exceptional year characterised by a series of momentous events…

The Profumo affair, the defection of ‘the third man’ Kim Philby, the Great Train Robbery, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the Beatles breakthrough – to name just a few.

Contemporary Specialist Mark Dunton draws on our rich archival sources to take you through the year, 60 years ago, when the Sixties truly started to swing.
