This September, we’re taking you on a lyrical journey through the era defining movements of the late 1960s. From ‘The Swinging City’ of London; the student riots in Paris; the birth of festival culture from Glastonbury to Woodstock to the emergence of alternative communities on the West Coast of America. The exhibition re-creates these five revolutionary years, exploring the optimism, idealism and struggles of the time, which continue to resonate in the world we live in today. Book now
