Take a look at some of the photographs on display at the AMM archive exhibition taking place as part of this year's edition of Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

Huddersfield Contemporay Music Festival has given us a sneak peak at some of the photos that will be on display in its special AMM 50th anniversary programme. AMM: The Inexhaustible Document Exhibition will take place at Heritage Quay between 21–29 November and consists of photographs, rare posters, memories and reflections provided by members of AMM. It will also feature AMM's own vintage wine label.

HCMF takes place from 20–29 November at various venues in Huddersfield. Other AMM events include a rare performance reuniting the AMM trio of John Tilbury, Keith Rowe and Eddie Prévost; The Wire contributor Philip Clark conducting an onstage conversation with Prévost; David Toop hosting a talk about the collective; and an improvisation workshop fronted by Prévost. More information on this, and the other non-AMM events, can be found on HCMF website.
