JUTE, JAM & JACKIE
with Gayle Anderson & Shona Main
Jackie magazine – though it folded almost 25 years ago – is still a legend in the world of publishing.
The UK’s very first teen magazine, in its hey-day it was selling a staggering 600,000 copies each week. Even now, the very mention of its name is guaranteed to transport women of a certain age – and a fair few men too – back to a safe, pre-social media world of photo-stories, fashion, make-up, pin-ups and Cathy & Claire.
Today, in the same D. C. Thomson Meadowside offices where the magic happened, journalist Gayle Anderson and filmmaker Shona Main revisit the time, the place and their experiences as young women – just a few years older than their readers – shaping the teenage sensibilities of a nation. Advice on spots, boyfriends, bad friends and bodily functions will be on offer if and where required.
When: Saturday 21st October, 5.30pm
Where: Counting House, D.C. Thomson offices, Meadowside
Tickets: £3, concession £2
