From Vivienne Westwood’s iconic SEX boutique to Malcolm McLaren’s headquarters, the history and legacy of the punk movement live on, offering up a fascinating story.

Steven Szymanski highlights the punk heritage of Chelsea, allowing attendees to relive the days of counterculture, self-expression and rebellion.
