The exhibition brings together rarely-seen original artwork and costumes, photographs, documents, three-dimensional objects, audio and video to tell the story, all in a theatrically immersive environment true to Coward’s spirit.

This fresh and vibrant look at one of the UK’s most popular playwrights and songwriters also reveals new facets to the man and his work that speak to our own time - from his championing of the work of women and black artists to the role that his identity as a gay man played in the formation of his unique stage persona.

The final section of Noël Coward: Art & Style celebrates his continuing impact upon contemporary design and fashion.

Bringing together never-before-seen materials from the Coward Archive, the exhibition demonstrates vividly the enormous impact that he and his creative circle had on the fashion and culture of his time, and how his legacy and influence still resonate today.
