So I know something is worth blogging about if three separate people have sent me information on the same thing – thanks Judy, Martin and Adrian. There is an exhibition of previously unseen images of Hendrix just off Piccadilliy, in fact about a 10 minute walk from Brook Street. How gutting is it therefore that I am going to be out of the country until after it closes on 23 August. I have to leave it to everyone else to go there and tell me what you think.

Despite my absence, although some might argue because of it, there have been great strides with the project and the team are in the throes of relocating our office to a temporary space while the building work is undertaken. Our computer server is moving to a new location and wires run to a different office. All this work in preparation has an official project name (of course) and is known as enabling works – I suppose that sounds slightly better than getting ready…

As well as moving the computers, protecting the floor for our temporary office is essential. Fantastic job team – well done.

Enthusiasm level: bubbling along
Progress: things are relocating
Quote: “I remember restoring these boards when the museum first opened.”


About Sarah Bardwell

Handel & Hendrix in London Trustee and leading the team that is reinstating, in the adjoining building, Jimi Hendrix's London flat to open to the public. Quirky twist of chance meant that baroque legend Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in the 18th century and that rock legend Hendrix lived next door in the 1960s.

      Hi Jason,

      The post is scheduled to go out at 5.25pm today so perhaps that is why it is not working at the moment, but do let me know if you have any further trouble once it is live.

      Thank you,
