Dates: 06 Aug 2020 - 06 Aug 2020
Location: Online via Zoom
On the 26th May 1967 English rock band The Beatles secured their eighth studio album with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was surreal and psychedelic in places yet it was a landmark record in terms of it’s cultural sophistication and it’s strong artistic influence throughout.
53 years later and people are still remembering what an iconic record it was. Recently a monthly arrangement was organised ideally meant for practising artists from East Lancashire and around the district. Simply titled ‘The Lonely Arts Club’ the virtual group led by In-Situ was arranged during the lockdown period.
The online group meets on the first Friday of each where a series of artists meet to :-

The original Sgt. Pepper album was a defining moment in 1960s pop culture. It foreshadowed the Summer of Love and received cult status both for it’s excellent songs and stance as a relic of art for the fab four.
