Coinciding with the launch of new film My Generation, which is presented and produced by Michael Caine, Carnaby is hosting a free two-week exhibition. David Batty's documentary sees Michael Caine take viewers on a vivid and inspiring journey through 1960s London. The exhibition will bring together a collection of photographs, prints and archive footage from the 1960s, with pieces from the iconic contributors from the film, including Twiggy, The Who and Paul McCartney, and the infamous portrait of Christine Keeler, taken by Lewis Morley. The exhibition takes place at 3 Carnaby Street.

 

About Carnaby Street

The name Carnaby Street is synonymous with 1960s "Swinging London" - a phrase coined by Time magazine. Nowadays the area has gone through something of a revival and is once again boasting cutting edge designer talents and trendy street ware. With over 140 shops, bars and restaurants to choose from in the area, it's definitely worth a visit. More about Carnaby Street
