1960s rare photos

Amongst the rare photographs on display is an image of comedy due Peter Cook & Dudley Moore taken by producer and director Bryan Forbes as a publicity shot for his film ‘The Wrong Box’ (1966). Bryan Forbes’ widow, acclaimed actress Nanette Newman, was guest-of-honour at the event, and commented, “The 1960s was a fascinating and exciting period and this wonderful exhibition superbly recalls the vitality of this period and brings the decade back to life for a new generation.”

Colin Sayers, Managing Director of Seasoned Events said, “The exhibition is incredible and the retro theme really played in to the design of the menu. Our creative projects team love it when a brief like this comes along, as you can really take the guest on a journey and engage with all of their senses to deliver a sensational experience.“
