There are infamous, iconic pieces of British music memorabilia featured including David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes clown suit and Ziggy Stardust costume, Noel Gallagher’s Union Jack guitar, Roger Daltrey’s Woodstock outfit and a vintage Amy Winehouse dress.
They also have a full public and educational programme with workshops, lectures, master-classes and concerts aiming to help teachers raise standards in your school across the national curriculum for children aged 8 to 16 and for the qualifications aimed at young people aged 14 to 19.
