Dressed top-to-toe in an awe-inspiring mixture of shining leather and gleaming studs and chains, Judas Priest moved the Heavy Metal scene and its fans firmly into the territory of the rebellious outlaw; to a place where image became inextricably linked with sound.v

  This exhibition features stage costumes from Judas Priest tours borrowed from the band’s own collection plus a wealth of fans’ memorabilia and photographs.

The exhibition is open from now until the 10th of September.
