Stormtroopers in Stilettos - Brick Lane hosts early years of Queen exhibition

MARKING 40 years since the formation of flamboyant rock band Queen, Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery is hosting an exhibition chronicling the group’s early years.

Stormtroopers in Stilettos takes a comprehensive look at the early part of Queen’s career, from before the band’s formation in 1971 when various band members were dreaming of success while studying astrophysics or running stalls next to Biba in Kensington Market, right up to their spectacular free gig for more than 250,000 fans in Hyde Park in 1976.

The free exhibition runs until Saturday, March 12 and is open Monday-Sunday from 11am-9pm.
