The Beatles at NPG

Angus McBean - Audrey Hepburn (1951) Spike Milligan (1961)
On Friday 25 August 2006 the National Portrait Gallery, London, will be holding a Beatles Evening, beginning at 18.00 hours ... er ... 6pm: "An evening of music and memories ... Dress 60s!" Coxsoft Art will have to find its old winklepickers for this one. So what has this to do with the lovely Audrey Hepburn and Spike Milligan? Both photos are works of art by Angus McBean, who also photographed the fab four. The Beatles Evening highlights two interrelated exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery, both continuing until 22 October 2006. In the Balcony Gallery there's The Beatles on the Balcony, admission free. In the Porter Gallery there's Angus McBean: Portraits, a major retrospective of one of the most artistic UK photographers of the 20th century, admission £5 (£3.50 for silver surfers). It's two for the price of one!
