Newsheets - 1970s/80s

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

When the Blackie opened in the late 1960s, not only did social media not exist (no Facebook, no Tweeting, no You tube), there were also no computers and hence no form of electronic communication.

Newsheets, alongside posters and leaflets, were the way the Blackie advertised its events, communicated with the local community, including the local young people who came to the Blackie regurlarly, appealed for materials and recruited its staff and volunteers.  

The Newsheets normally included a timetable and well as descriptions of the playschemes and events. So the newsheets are a good record of what we were doing at the time of their publication.

The Blackie published newsheets throughout from 1969 (the early ones did not even have a cover) through to the late 1980s.  They involved all the staff and the young people.   We both posted them and delivered them by hand. 

We have published 18 of them here. They represent the ones  we have left or have been able to find. If anyone has old copies not included here we'd be very happy to include them.
