CARL  VAN DER WALLE: ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 50TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION

 

Plus music from Dick Taylor (of The Pretty Things) & friends

 

It’s 50 years since the first Isle of Wight Festival was held, initally planned as a fundraising activity for a public swimming pool but which by 1970 had grown into one the most legendary events of all time.

 

It became so large that it led to a ban on island events which wasn’t overturned until 2001! It was also at this event that a young Carl Van Der Walle was visiting from Germany and took many amazing photos. In celebration of the festival’s anniversary we’ll be hosting a very special exhibition of Carl Van der Walle’s photographs, which have never been shown on the island before.

 

Private View open to public on Friday 1st June from 7.30pm music from Dick taylor and friends from 8pm 

 

Exhibition Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 5pm – 11pm except Saturdays 10am – 11pm
