Blues Unlimted Exhibition In Bexhill Museum

Bexhill Museum is pleased to announce a new exhibition for 2019 – BLUES UNLIMITED.

Did you know Bexhill was the birthplace of Blues Unlimited Magazine?

This small exhibition explains the foundations of the magazine and the personnel involved. It charts the story of how a publication originally produced by hand grew to be read by people such as the Rolling Stones and how Blues Unlimited secured its place in the annals of music history.

In 1963 former Bexhill Grammar School boys Mike Leadbitter and Simon A. Napier founded the world’s first magazine exclusively devoted to blues music.

Their dedication to the magazine produced world class research that is still considered pre-eminent in its field.

The story of the magazine is told through text, photographs and other exhibits including copies of the magazine, books and ephemera.

Exhibition opens January 21st. The museum is open 7 days a week until mid-December. Opening hours 10-5 Tues-Fri, 11-5 Sat, Sun, Mon and bank holidays.
