‘A Splendid time is guaranteed for all’ (Toronto Globe and Mail)

‘One person who has been something of a flag waver for the Beatles London has been Richard Porter: whose passion and knowledge of the group are apparent from the moment you meet him. Richard opens up each building’s Beatles connection and history with vivid detail and anecdotal information. Without doubt, he is the authority concerning the group’s movements within the capital during the 1960s.’ – Beatles Monthly magazine.

Sgt Pepper Event in the Ground of Chiswick House

It was 50 years ago today, Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play…

In May 1966, the four most famous people on the planet strolled into Chiswick House and Gardens to create two ground-breaking mini films which would change music history… “Paperback Writer” and “Rain”

To celebrate 50 years since the release of The Beatles’ “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club album”, Chiswick House and Gardens is hosting an extraordinary living installation that recreates the infamous album cover in front of the Ionic Temple, in partnership with Gavin Jones Ltd.
