A bus displaying the work of the father of British Pop Art has made a special visit to Kings Langley.

Sir Peter Blake is best-known as the designer of the sleeve of the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and a travelling CCA Art Gallery bus displaying many of his original limited edition pieces was parked in the village High Street last Thursday, October 18.
 
The event was held in conjunction with Shanti Art Gallery in the High Street and some of the pieces from the Peter Blake collection were also displayed in the gallery.

Michael Green, owner of the gallery, said: "It was fantastic and even though I didn’t have any expectations before the day, had I done so, it would have exceeded them by a country mile.

"There was a lot of community spirit and the bus and gallery were absolutely heaving with many members of the village who had come out to support us.

"We had children from Kings Langley school come along to complete their art project, which was very exciting for all of us. 

"It was a very memorable day and I would like to thank the community for supporting and attending. Without them it would have been nothing.
