Be among the first to see Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant and hear from the curators of the exhibition.

Exploring the transformative era of the late 1950s to the 1970s, this exhibition presents the design, fashion, and art of a group of radical young architects, designers, photographers, and artists who redefined the concept of youth, heralding the enduring Mid-Century Modern style.

From the design of Terence Conran to the ground-breaking fashion of Mary Quant and Bernard and Laura Ashley, hear fascinating insights on the lifestyle revolution from the exhibition curators, and how design and fashion were used to demand and effect social change in the years that followed.

Ticket includes entry to exhibition 2-3pm on day of the event
