Former Sex Pistols manager and punk legend Malcolm McLaren‘s funeral details have been released.

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

According to a statement posted on the website of human rights charity Humanade, which is run by McLaren‘s son Joseph Corré, the funeral will be held in London this Thursday (April 22) and will begin with a public procession leading to Highgate cemetery, where a private burial will take place.

The statement encouraged members of the public to observe the procession and pay their respects from 1:15pm (BST) to 2:15pm on Thursday. The convoy will pass through Camden High Street, Chalk Farm Road, Ferdinand Street, Malden Road and Southampton Road, before ending at Highgate Cemetery.

Mourners have also been asked to observe a ‘minute of mayhem’ in McLaren‘s memory at noon on Thursday. “Put on your favourite records” says the Humanade message, “and let it RIP!”

Corré, son of McLaren and former partner Vivienne Westwood and founder of lingerie company Agent Provocateur, has released a limited edition ‘Cash From Chaos’ t-shirt in honour of his late father. The design is based on the t-shirt worn by McLaren in his 1980 film ‘The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle’.

The shirt can be purchased through and all proceeds will go towards the charity.
