Talk the Revolution! In celebration of #RecordsandRebels, join us for a series of talks and book signings with key figures from 1960s counterculture at the V&A Shop @carnabylondon residence. On Thursday 1 December, Ray Faulk, founder of the Isle of Wight Music Festival, will discuss his books, Stealing Dylan from Woodstock: When the World Came to the Isle of Wight and The Last Great Event with Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison. The Isle of Wight Festival in 1969 famously stole Bob Dylan from Woodstock and was the starting point and benchmark for all rock and pop festivals in the UK. What followed in 1970 was one of the world's greatest music gatherings of all time, attracting musicians and fans from across the whole musical spectrum. It would be Hendrix's last major performance - 17 days later he was dead.
This event takes place on Thursday 1 December, 6.30-7.30pm, at the V&A Shop Carnaby Street residence (56a Carnaby Street). The talk is free, but booking is essential as places are very limited. To RSVP for this event, email firstname.lastname@example.org stating the event in the subject. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so be quick!
