If you are into British music in anyway at all then you must visit the British Musical Experience at the O2.
This new permanent interactive music exhibition is all set to be as big a fixture as the O2 Arena itself, if you ask me. I popped along to the museum last week and was overwhelmed by the collection of Memorabilia!
Over 100 artists feature in the exhibition from The Beatles to Iron Maiden, from Cilla Black to Elastica, from David Bowie to Motorhead with in depth looks at musical genres from Skiffle to Reggae, from Rock n Roll to Blues, from Punk to Urban.
Although the exhibition is predominantly interactive it also features tonnes of pieces of memorabilia including David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes clown suit and Ziggy Stardust costume, Noel Gallagher’s Union Jack guitar, Roger Daltrey’s Woodstock outfit and a vintage Amy Winehouse dress.
It is definitely the exhibition I would advise people to pop along too. And if you are trekking all the way to the O2 anyhow, then why not go a bit earlier and check out the BME beforehand! I caught up with eighties star Betty Boo last week who also loved what she saw. She told me: “The BME exhibition was amazing. It celebrates everything about British music – all genres. It’s pretty amazing and definitely the hottest new tourist attraction to visit. I also loved the fact I was in it!”
