Mandela: The Official ExhibitionFollowing on from the Southbank Centre's centenary exhibition last year, another Nelson Mandela Exhibition comes to London in 2019. Taking place at 26 Leake Street - a new venue in the railway arches under Waterloo station - the major new exhibition explores the life of the world's most famous freedom fighter and political leader, delving deeper into his story than any exhibition has ever gone before. The event will display many of Mandela's personal belongings, including a number of items that have never before been shown outside of South Africa.
