Malcolm McLaren’s funeral to include ‘minute of mayhem’ and public procession

Mourners encouraged 'let RIP!' as they remember punk impresario

The funeral details for former Sex Pistols manager and punk impresario Malcolm McLaren have been announced.

McLaren passed away aged 64 at a Swiss clinic on April 8 after battling a rare form of cancer.

His funeral will be held in London next Thursday (April 22), and will be preceded by a public procession leading to Highgate cemetery, where he will be laid to rest in a private ceremony.


A statement posted on human rights charity Humanade‘s website , which is run by McLaren‘s son Joseph Corré, said that members of the public are invited to pay their respects by observing the funeral procession, which takes place from 1:15pm (BST) to 2:15pm on Thursday. It will travel through Camden High Street, Chalk Farm Road, Ferdinand Street, Malden Road and Southampton Road, before ending at Highgate Cemetery.

In addition, people are also asked to observe a ‘minute of mayhem’ in McLaren‘s honour at noon on Thursday. “Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!” the message on Humanade instructs.

Corré, McLaren‘s son with former partner Vivienne Westwood and founder of lingerie company Agent Provocateur, has also paid tribute to his late father by releasing a limited edition ‘Cash From Chaos’ T-shirt based on the design worn by McLaren in his 1980 film ‘The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle’.

Proceeds from all sales of the shirt, which is on sale now at, will go to the charity.
