About the event
This new exhibition looks at the remarkable moment that Ziggy Stardust was launched in Tolworth and the wider music and pop culture scene in the area.
It explores the impact Bowie’s alter ego had on art, music and pop fashion and how society in Kingston reflected national and international trends, from Mary Quant makeup produced by Gala Cosmetics on the Chessington Industrial Estate, to Kingston Polytechnic’s role as music venue and creative hub.
Interviews with musicians, artists and authors will complement a unique collection of items.
