After two years, the Oasis Exhibition comes home
Oasis, the legendary, record-breaking Britpop band, formed by Liam and Noel Gallagher had its origins in Manchester, in 1991. Twenty-five years later, the band returns home as a long-awaited exhibition.

First launched in 2014, London, the Chasing the Sun Exhibition, created by photographer Lawrence Watson, features a set of images and exclusive memorabilia honouring the band.

The exhibition focuses on the Band's key years, 1993 to 1997, narrating their rise to stardom; from its origins in Manchester to stadium superstars, through the iconic albums Definitely Maybe, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Be Here Now.

Oasis fanatics will have the opportunity to see five of Noel Gallagher's guitars, handwritten lyrics to the likes of 'Champagne Supernova,' 'She's Electric' and 'Roll with it' and an unseen picture of Liam Gallagher recording Be Here Now.

The most popular highlight is perhaps a life-size set recreation of Paul Arthurs' West Didsbury living room, where the public will be able to recreate the Definitely Maybe album cover, shot there in 1994.

The Exhibition displays a set of photographs accompanied by bits of history. Photographers such as Brian Cannon (Definitely Maybe cover designer), Jill Furmanovsky (who spent years on the road with the band), contributed to the exhibition. There's also a 25-minute film projection recollecting early interviews, performances and commentary from Noel.
