British Music Experience
On Thursday I was fortunate to enough to be invited to the launch of the British Music Experience. Having met with the curators of the exhibition and seen what was planned on a presentation, I couldn't wait to see it for real.
And I wasn't disappointed. For anyone with an interest in music or just a general like of music, this exhibition is a must see. We spent 2 hours wandering around in the various zones each containing a different era. Everything is very interactive from fret boards and keyboards to play to select various audio clips to talking head tables featuring key players in the music history. You can dance, you can play instruments and the exit show is one not to miss.
I don't want to give too much away but I highly recommend the exhibition. The 2 hours we were there was no where near enough time so if you do go, the minimum should be half a day to ensure you have plenty of time to look and interact with everything. Adult prices are £15 but this is fair price given how much there is to do and see.
After the exhibition we were invited over to Matter to party into the night. We were treated to live performances by The Pipettes and The Saturdays.
I love The Pipettes and was glad to see them. Check out Pull Shapes - my favourite song.
The Saturdays were also good although I think the guys were more impressed by them and their skimpy outfits.
After The Saturdays, Radio One's Scott Mills came on for a DJ set and eventually a resident DJ finished the night off. And I was shattered from dancing and looking forward to my bed!
