Guided by Richard P. (“the Pied Piper of Beatlemania”)
Meet your guide, Richard P. “On the Rock ‘n’ Roll Trail in Chelsea” (yeah, this podcast is a riff or two from the tour).
Join the Beatles in London from the comfort of your own home for the unique interactive experience Chelsea Swinging London 60s Tour!
Welcome to my Chelsea – where London was ‘Swingin’ in the 60s Tour live and interactive virtual experience!
London’s Chelsea was the favourite haunt of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Mary Quant and Twiggy in ‘Swinging London’ of the 60s.
Be transported to ‘Swinging London’ and the King’s Road – where Rock and Roll royalty would mix with actors, models and artists and members of the aristocracy.
Hear stories of where Beatles opened a clothes shop and had the Sgt Pepper album cover picture taken, and how the Rolling Stones went from living in a squalid student flat to one of most exclusive streets in London.
It was where the ‘dedicated followers of fashion’ came to buy their clothes from the likes of Mary Quant, and had their hair cut by Vidal Sassoon.
And ‘World’s End’ where the Sex Pistols were formed!
This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
