Led Zeppelin memorabilia show to rock Knebworth

OK, so you probably won't get a chance to see Led Zeppelin in the flesh till 2009. But that doesn't mean you can't feast your eyes on some very cool Zep memorabilia in the meantime.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the formation of Led Zeppelin - with the proceeds of all donations/raffle-prize money going to the ABC Trust, Action for Brazil's Children - Zeppelin fans can view a selection of all things Zep-related over four decades at a month-long Led Zeppelin Memorabilia Exhibition will be staged at Hertfordshire's Knebworth House in the UK. (Plan your summer plane fares accordinginly, folks.)

Amongst the many juicy items are large amounts of handbills, tickets, rare vinyl, programs, signed photos...it's a long list which keeps growing...and you'll have to be there to experience it all!

For example, visitors will see a red leather jacket belonging to John Bonham, which still has the Led Zeppelin 1979 Guest Artist Pass for the Knebworth show on August 11th 1979 attached to it. There are also all the albums signed by the band, and Jimmy Pages's robe from the 1980 tour. And that's just for starters!

Held by permission of the Knebworth House Education and Preservation Trust, the Led Zeppelin Memorabilia Exhibit takes place in the family library of Edward Bulwer Lytton at Knebworth House from August 1 - September 3.
