#NC60s

The Times They Are A-Changing as #NipClub takes you to the 1960s, the decade that transformed the world!

Some people tried to join Jethro Tull in Living In The Past, but Bob Dylan got it right when he announced that The Times They Are A-Changing! 

It was a time of an explosion of creativity - in music, in fashion, in politics, in science and in arts. The evolution of society picked up its pace as people finally threw off post-war austerity and started to have fun and to experiment with new ideas. 

Girls were given better education choices - women burned their bras and took new jobs outside the home. Marchers called for Civil Rights, and mankind ventured into space.

Synthesizers arrived in music - and so did four young guys from Liverpool, England. One of them mis-spelled The Silver Beetles' name, and The Beatles phenomenon was born.

Mary Quant slashed skirt lengths, and Andy Warhol made soup cans look cool. The Beach Boys brought the California surf world-wide, and suddenly the beach was the place to go. Communications satellites circled the globe, and for the first time ever a TV broadcast was seen simultaneously in the USA and the UK. 

In Detroit, the Motor City found its voice and gave the world the Motown Sound. Peace signs were everywhere, and a generation seeking peace and love set off for San Francisco with flowers in their hair. 

A spirit of optimism and adventure filled the air, and now you can share it, too, because #NipClub is bringing the 1960s experience together for you in our own exciting Summer of Nip! 

For 24 hours starting August 10 at 2pm EDT (7pm UK) we're taking you back to where so many things we take for granted first began.

Experience for yourself the sense of discovery and liberation that make the 1960s stand out as a decade. We have the music, the noms and drinks, the hairstyles and of course the fashions - all we need to complete the picture is YOU! 

Sign up right now for a fabulous adventure - it's groovy, baby...
