Hendrix at Home

Discovering Hendrix at Handel & Hendrix in London

Post 110: Not open quite yet…

Apologies for the lack of postings recently things have been a bit hectic around here. In case you hadn’t noticed, which is probably unlikely, there has been some publicity about the Flat finally opening over the last few days. But just to clarify it is not open yet. There are builders all over the place at the moment and there are likely to be here for a couple of months yet and then the exhibition designers still need to come in and work their magic. The flat is not actually open until next February. What you can do now however is buy a ticket to come and visit next year so check it out on our new website: www.handelhendrix.org

In woodchip news, and it must have been at least 3 weeks since I have mentioned that wonderful wallpaper covering that we are hoping will make a come back. New woodchip has been reapplied and is now looking rather stunning in all its painted glory. Check out the progress of the walls in these pictures. Go on wouldn’t you love your bedroom wall to be a bit bumpy and very touchy feely!

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.
