A special exhibition of iconic footwear and clothing from Vivienne Westwood, and ‘The Sex Pistols Mural’ by radical artist Jamie Reid, will begin at Lincoln Castle on Saturday.
‘Bondage to Liberation: Anarchic Collections’ will arrive at Lincoln Castle on Saturday, August 10 and stay until Saturday, November 16 from 10am-5pm.
The Lincolnite went for a sneak preview on Friday of the exhibition, which is set against the backdrop of Lincoln Castle’s Victorian Prison and the Magna Carta Vault.
It includes pieces from the 1970s onwards from the private collection of Lee Prince, and celebrates Vivienne Westwood and Jamie Reid’s legacy of non-conformity throughout the decades.
Vivienne Westwood and her team have also included a selection of items to compliment Lee Price’s collection on the theme of human rights and freedom of speech. This includes a handwritten cape which will be exhibited inside the Magna Carta Vault.
Tickets are priced at £14 for adults, £11.50 for concessions, £7.50 for children £35.50 for a family ticket, but it is free for annual pass holders. Click here to purchase tickets.
