Join us for a special reminiscence on Rom Skatepark, the world’s only heritage listed skatepark. The Rom Skatepark was built in 1978 to the designs of Adrian Rolt/G-force, and as of 11th September 2014 is now a Grade II listed site. It was agreed to be the best, and most completely preserved, of a small number of purpose-built skateparks to survive from the early years of British skateboarding. This reminiscence supports the ROM BOYS 40 YEARS of RAD exhibition which starts on 23rd March and runs until 6th April.

This is a free event but due to limited spaces tickets must be booked in advance.
