Max and I have just got back from The Lowry, where they’ve currently got a FREE exhibition called ‘The House Of Annie Lennox’ which is running until Sunday 17 June 2012.
Annie Lennox is a massive icon to me, and I’m a big fan, so this was indeed a treat – in addition, as this is a Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum collection, the production values on it were fantastic, I thought, and I loved how intimate it all felt in terms of closeness to Annie’s life, and her personal involvement as a curator the show.
The House element to the exhibition was fantastically designed, and really felt magical, and away from this, I also loved that there was a whole massive wall devoted to displaying all of her Gold/Platinum discs, that her Oscar was on display, and that there was a special cinema room set up so that people could just go in, sit down and while away the day watching Annie Lennox music videos – heaven!! ^_^
If you’ve got a spare hour or so to spare, then this exhibition is really a nice way to pass an afternoon (especially over the BH weekends!) and is great for all the family.
Further information on the exhibition can be found on The Lowry’s website.
