Chapter 50 - The Early Years Posted on 07 May 2020

Next year we celebrate our 50th Birthday. To mark this momentous occasion we’re looking back through our archive at some of the incredible events, exhibitions, gigs, gatherings and people who’ve made Chapter what it is today.

This week we’re celebrating the three founders of Chapter: Christine Kinsey, Mik Flood and Bryan Jones who set-up Chapter in the 1970s. You can find out more about how their determination, creative energy and vision brought Chapter to life here:
