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).


Nowhere Boy - BFI London Film Festival

The world premiere of Nowhere Boy, the hotly anticipated debut film from British artist Sam Taylor-Wood, will close The Times BFI 53rd London Film Festival.
The film, written by Matt Greenhalgh (Control), tells the story of John Lennon’s childhood. Set in Liverpool in 1955, Lennon is a smart but troubled 15 year old stuck in a clash between his Aunt Mimi and his mother. Trying to escape a family full of secret, he finds rock n’roll and a kindred spirit in a teenage Paul McCartney.
Newcomer Aaron Johnson stars as Lennon with Kristin Scott Thomas playing Aunt Mimi and Anna-Marie Duff as his mother. The cast also features David Morrissey, David Threlfall, Thomas Brodie Sangster who will play the young Paul McCartney, and another newcomer, Sam Bell, takes the role of George Harrison.
Sandra Hebron, the festival’s artistic director, said: We’re delighted to be closing our festival with the first feature by Sam Taylor-Wood, who brings her customary sensitivity and visual flair to this story of the formative years of one of the UK’s cultural icons."
Taylor-Wood added: "For Nowhere Boy to be chose to close the London Film Festival, in a city I grew up and which continues to inspire me is truly amazing."
Nowhere Boy is an Ecosse Film production in association with Film4, the UK Film Council’s Premiere Fund, Northwest Vision and Media. Lip Sync Productions and Aver Media. The script was developed with the support of the UKFC’s Development Fund. It will be released through Icon Film Distribution on December 26.
HanWay Films is handling the international rights and The Weinstein Company has US rights.

Here is the director Sam Taylor-Wood, Harvey, Scott Thomas who plays Mimi and Johnson.
