Featuring rare artefacts, live events, and more...
John Lydon

The British Library is set to host a season dedicated to the birth of punk this summer.

The Punk 1976-78 exhibition opens on May 13th, and will feature a host of rare artefacts - expect punk zines, photography, John Peel's personal copy of 'Teenage Kicks' and more.

Original clothing from the SEX boutique run by Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood will be on display, alongside posters, gig tickets and flyers from the Roxy Club, Covent Garden and Eric's Club, Liverpool.

In addition to this, Punk 1976-78 will also host conversation pieces featuring John Lydon and Bernard Rhodes - the controversial manager of The Clash.
