Recommendation of the week: A Swinging 60s Special with the V&A

This week we have a slightly different recommendation. To satiate all music history nerds, merchandise lovers and costume queens, Lepus took a trip to the V&A Museum. The V&A is currently running an exhibition entitled ‘You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970’. The exhibition is a swinging 60s sonic experience from start to finish. On arrival you are presented with a pair of headphones, that automatically play a variety of tracks, movie clip audios and news readings, depending on which exhibit you are looking at. The variety of visual delights include: original handwritten scrawls of lyrics, photographs of 60s stars, film clips and an array of the most brilliant 60s costumes (including the Beatles iconic Sergeant Pepper outfits). The best highlight has to be the immersive recreation of the mythical 1969 Woodstock Festival. Music history nerds, merchandise lovers and costume queens check out the link and head over to the V&A.
