Step backstage into the life and career of one of the world’s greatest musicians of all time, Amy Winehouse.

More than just a musician, Amy Winehouse is a cultural icon. Her image is instantly recognisable by her signature beehive and black eyeliner, while her voice is unmistakably distinctive and her songs are deeply personal. Celebrate the breadth of her creativity and the legacy she left behind in this major exhibition delving into her life and career.

Peruse Amy’s teenage notebooks and early recordings to unravel the process behind her music, plus explore the artists and genres of music that influenced her songs, from Dinah Washington and Mark Ronson, to the world of 60s pop, Motown and jazz.

Some of her most memorable outfits will be on display, as well as handwritten lyrics and never-before-seen personal items, and a real highlight in the exhibition is her baby blue Daphne Fender Stratocaster guitar.
