Redding told the Kentish Express: “It will obviously bring back a lot of memories for me.
“I used to practice guitar with Noel when we were kids. He started playing guitar from the age of 10 and he would say: ‘Mum, I’m going to be famous’.”
The exhibition, at the Sassoon Gallery at Folkestone Library, Grace Hill, continues until May 18. It is being held around the 10th anniversary of Noel’s death.
It will feature work commemorating Noel and the band by Stephen McCarthy, Chris Bone, John Sims and Joe Beach.
Among those attending will be Bill Regan, who was a stand-in drummer when the Experience played an impromptu gig just down the road at the Hillside Club in 1966.
