Culture clash? Pop in a royal park

July 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


50 years ago, as a memorial to founding member Brian Jones, the Rolling Stones gave a concert in Hyde Park which passed into legend. But back in 1968, when Peter Jenner, manager of Pink Floyd, wrote to the authorities asking for permission to hold a concert in Hyde Park, he received a negative reply which he described as ‘crusty’. So how did it come to pass that a whole series of pop concerts was held in this Royal Park in 1968-69? Find out in this talk and document display with Contemporary Records Specialist Mark Dunton.
