A brand new exhibition showcasing the rise to fame of successful Wakefield rock band, The Cribs, opens at Wakefield Museum on Wednesday 15 February.

The Cribs have electrified the British music scene since 2002. They have produced six albums and played countless gigs, festivals and concerts around the world. The band has collaborated with major names in the world of rock. In 2012, The Cribs were honoured with the Spirit of Independence award at the Q Awards and the Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the NME Awards.

The new display will include some of the band’s instruments and other items that chart the history of the popular band.

The Cribs have never lost touch with their Wakefield roots and this exhibition is celebrating the huge success that the local band has achieved.

Create Café will also be displaying The Cribs work by graphic designer, Nick Scott. The display will include various artwork and album covers from The Cribs legacy.

The displays will be unveiled at a public launch event on Tuesday 14 February, where The Cribs drummer, Ross Jarman, will be at Wakefield One to officially open the new exhibition.

The display will run from 15 February until July 2017.
