Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


John Lennon: The New York Ciy Years - May 2009

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC (76 Mercer St., NYC) was honoured to present JOHN LENNON: THE NEW YORK CITY YEARS which opened in May 2009. The extraordinary exhibit presented exclusive artifacts from the life and work of John Lennon. The exhibit featured never‐before‐seen items that uniquely commemorate Lennon’s life in New York City.

"John would have been so pleased that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex in New York was honouring his life and work. It was a city we called home for many years and I so hope it will be a true gift to New York City’s residents and visitors that have been such supportive fans"
Yoko Ono.

The exhibit was created by Yoko Ono and curated by Jim Henke, Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs, for the New York City Annex. The exhibit included a selection of rare artifacts, films and photos as well as exclusive New York‐centric additions provided by the generosity of Yoko Ono.

"Yoko Ono has been very generous to the Hall of Fame over the years, and we are delighted to be able to work with her on this new exhibit. John Lennon spent the last nine years of his life in New York, and he loved the city. This exhibit will examine those years and the many things John accomplished while in New York."
Jim Henke, curator & Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs.

More than 932,000 people have been killed by guns in the U.S.A. since John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980.
