William Morris returns from the dead, a hen harrier seeks revenge on a Range Rover, and Jersey’s capital St Helier burns as Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller conjures his ‘English Magic’ in Margate.

From Neolithic hand axes, through William Morris, John Ruskin and the socialist movement, to David Bowie’s 1972 Ziggy Stardust UK tour, 21st Century capitalism and the invasion of Iraq, the exhibition weaves a mythical narrative through moments and events from Britain’s shared cultural memory, moving back and forth between the past, present and an imagined future.

Admission to the gallery is free.
