‘Swinging Sixties’ Exhibition in Lichfield Museum

A groovy Swinging Sixties exhibition is taking place at Lichfield Museum at St Mary’s in the Market Square.

The exhibition features memorabilia from the 1960s – the decade associated with The Beatles, mini skirts and beehive hairstyles.

On show at the museum are records, a collection of psychedelic clothes and nostalgic photographs.

The majority of objects that are on display have been loaned by people from Lichfield and are from various parts of the UK.

There also some items of clothing from London – the focus of fashion at the time.

Peter Griffiths, volunteer at Lichfield Museum said: “The 1960s was such an iconic decade and we are excited to launch this exhibition to show the designs and fashion of the swinging sixties.”

The exhibition started on March 3 and will run through until June 30, Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 3.30pm. The display itself is free, but normal entry prices to the museum apply.

Lichfield Museum was re-launched early in 2014 from Lichfield Heritage Centre.
