An exhibition launching next month delves into the 60s and 70s Stamford Hill Mod movement and its famous member Marc Bolan from glam rock group T Rex.

Visitors to the exhibition at the council-run Hackney Museum in Reading Lane will learn about Hackney’s Mod members and their iconic music and fashion, integral to the scene.

Photographs, printed ephemera and artefacts will document the history along with stories from local people who were part of the Mods or have stories to share.

The free exhibition will run from October 25 until January 26 and the deadline for submission of memories is October 1.
