Grassroots Series
Dalston Superstore Takeover

Live Radio Broadcast | 31 August | 6-9pm | Free

Join us in the Gallery and online for this special Whitechapel Radio Station (WRS) broadcast, as the iconic Dalston Superstore takes over the Gallery’s airwaves. Expect music, stories and conversations from the venue’s organisers and allies exploring the Dalston Superstore’s history and its central role in London’s diverse LBTQ+ community.

This event is part of Whitechapel Gallery’s Grassroots series, which explores the rich history and diversity of music venues in East London. Grassroots sees us partner with three esteemed venues; each venue takes over the airwaves with live music, performances, and DJ sets alongside conversations with venue allies exploring the histories, highlights and challenges each organisation has faced.

As well as online listening, these broadcasts will be open to the public.

Please note, tickets do not guarantee entry. Entry is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
