Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition 2018This summer, the Southbank Centre marks the centenary of Nelson Mandela's birthday with a brand-new exhibition. Taking place in the newly renovated Queen Elizabeth Hall, Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition 2018 will explore the life and times of the iconic leader, from young freedom fighter to becoming the inspiration for an international movement against South Africa's violent apartheid system. Items on display include the famous Robben Island Bible, a pickaxe used by Mandela and his colleagues in the Robben Island Quarry, a letter of thanks written by Mandela to the British public, and the complete works of Shakespeare, which was studied by the leader during his time in prison.

 

About Southbank Centre: Queen Elizabeth Hall

Queen Elizabeth Hall is the second largest concert hall at Southbank Centre, presenting a diverse programme that covers the whole range of music and performing arts. The Royal Festival Hall's smaller sister venue Queen Elizabeth Hall ensures that even when there is a long-running show, the Southbank Centre can have almost nightly performances by world-class orchestras.
