Chris weston iw festival

Famous and rare photographs taken at the 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival are going on display at Isle of Wight Council’s Freshwater Library during August.

Local photographer Chris Weston will be showing many of his pictures from the historic event from 2 - 28 August.

Chris was one of only three full time electricians working on the site in Afton for a full three weeks but took his camera along and snapped what would turn out to be many iconic images.

On the final day of the exhibition, a special day is also being held at the library which provides an opportunity for anyone to come along and display their own photos from the 1970 event and also share their own memories.

The event on Saturday 28 August, held between 0930 - 1300, will also see the Freshwater and Totland Archive Group displaying a collection of its photos.

More information is available from staff at the library or by calling (01983) 752377.
