WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A permanent, interactive exhibition dedicated to the history of popular music in Britain. Using state-of-the-art effects it will show how rock, pop, dance and many other genres were formed and have influenced the last 60 years of British culture. From the classic era defining sounds of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Dusty Springfield... To stadium filling giants like The Who and Queen... To the irresistible anarchy of bands like The Specials and Sex Pistols... Right up to recent crowd-pleasers such as Spice Girls, Oasis, Coldplay and Arctic Monkeys.
