The exhibition will be open from July 3, 2013 and will run until September 15, 2013. Amy’s brother Alex said that the ‘Back to Black’ singer was someone who was incredibly proud of her Jewish – London roots and while other families would go to the seaside on a sunny day, they would always go down to the East End.
