CLASSIC pictures of Beatles star Paul McCartney will be on display at an arts festival celebrating the works of a school’s former photographic scholars.
Sidcot Arts Centre in Oakridge Lane is showing off photos taken by former Sidcot School pupils – including some who have gone on to become top movie producers and documentary makers.
Ex-pupil Homer Sykes took a series of pictures of McCartney during his Wings tour in 1975 and four of the images will be a key part of the exhibition.
Film producer Tim Bevan, whose work has included blockbuster Hollywood fare Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Hot Fuzz and Atonement will also be showcased.
The exhibition also includes documentary maker Nick Broomfield, furniture maker Garth Reynolds, textile designer Theo Sykes, painter, potter and sculptor Sophia Hughes and painter Katherine Bryan-Merrett – and many more besides.
The exhibition is open to the public from April 10 to May 8, from 2-6pm Tuesday-Thursday and 11am-4pm Saturday.
Viewings at other times can also be made by appointment by calling 01934 845228.
