- Story Text: June 1 will mark 50 years since the release of The Beatles 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band', one of the most iconic albums in music.
Some of the artwork for the album was provided by the plant nursery, Clifton Nurseries, in Maida Vale, London and to celebrate 50 years since 'Sgt. Pepper's' came out, the group has recreated an interpretation of the cover which is due to go on display at Chiswick House and Gardens during the Chelsea Fringe Festival.
"Fifty years ago Clifton Nurseries where we are today received a phone call asking them to send a wide selection of colourful flowers down to a photoshoot - it turned out the photoshoot happened to be for the iconic album cover of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'," said a representative from Clifton Nurseries.
The Chelsea Fringe, a festival celebrating gardening and flowers, will see The Beatles themselves recreated using a wire framed structure and covered in New Zealand Moss.
Chiswick House and Gardens also has history with The Beatles as the 'Fab Four' played 'Paperback Writer' and 'Rain' at the venue for promotional videos.
The Chelsea Fringe Festival runs until June 4.
