Time Out says

Prepare to feel very old. It’s been 50 years since David Bowie released the iconic 1973 album ‘Aladdin Sane’. To celebrate the cultural landmark, Southbank Centre is hosting a two-month-long exhibition exploring how it was created along with special gigs and events. 

The ‘Aladdin Sane: 50 Years’ exhibition will run over two months exploring the album’s famous artwork by Brian Duffy and the cultural context in which it was created. On top of that, the season will also feature a live rendition of Aladdin Sane performed by Anna Calvi, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Roxanne Tataei, Tawiah, Lynks and the Nu Civilisation Orchestra, plus club nights from Queer House Party and Queer Bruk, and talks from Paul Burston, Geoffrey Marsh, Victoria Broackes and Chris Duffy. 


Opening hours:
Mon to Tue: 10am-6pm; Wed to Sun: 10am-8pm
