Memories of the Elite

June tells the story of her dancehall memories and of her father who was the leader of The Elite, a danceband in the Houghton area.
This story was inspired by objects from the North East Beat exhibition at Discovery Museum, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.

This object was also inspired by a pair of shoes from the collections at Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.
