Exhibition to celebrate Wycombe's musical heritage
A MEMORABILIA firm will celebrate High Wycombe’s musical heritage with a special exhibition.
Loudwater-based Briggs, which buys and sells rock and pop collectibles from the 1960s and 70s, is staging an open day this weekend and urging people to bring along any old posters, flyers, tickets or photographs which might be of interest to Thames Valley music fans.
Owner Alexander Budny then plans to exhibit the items later this year. He said: "It’s hard to believe that in 1964 The Rolling Stones performed at High Wycombe Town Hall, and then in 1965 locals were treated to a high energy performance by The Who....
"The Sex Pistols exploded into town in 1976 and the following year The Police played at The Nags Head."
Alexander said other towns in the area such as Chesham have also hosted high profile acts, including Rod Stewart at the CO-OP Hall in 1965.
The Briggs open days are this Saturday and Sunday at Loudwater House, London Road. For more information call 01494 436644.
