How have the finished and unfinished revolutions of the late 1960s changed the way we live today and think about the future?

 This major exhibition will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism.

A rousing and pertinent excavation of the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s

You Say You Want A Revolution? V&A ★★★★★

The late 1960s was a revolutionary time for music as well as politics. The V&A’s new blockbuster covers the fast-changing period from 1966-1970. It feels like the right time to re-visit it, as most visitors won’t have been alive at the time or aren’t old enough to remember it clearly.

But covering off The Beatles, Martin Luther King, the Vietnam war and the rise of consumerism in one exhibition is a big ask.
