Description

Discover the extraordinary story of popular music in London’s East End.

From Elizabethan ballads to the birth of grime, this first-of-its-kind exhibition takes visitors on a journey spanning four centuries, exploring how the East End and its people have inspired and shaped popular music.

Featuring an array of over a hundred rare and unique items — such as broadside ballads, sheet music, paintings, posters, records, tapes, and ephemera — it will a cover a diverse range of musical styles divided into four chronological sections.

Famous names such as Lionel Bart, Helen Shapiro, Small Faces, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Ocean, and Dizzee Rascal are showcased alongside lesser-known but impactful artists like Max Bacon, Stepney Sisters, Bow Gamelan Ensemble, and Joi Bangla Banned.
