    Four special events in the Hall’s Elgar Room will showcase the work of subversive filmmaker Peter Whitehead as part of the venue’s Summer of Love: Revisited series.

    This special evening will celebrate the Blu-Ray launch of the new HD restoration of Whitehead’s 1967 feature Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London.

    The film, named after a poem recited at the Hall by Allen Ginsberg, is driven by the pulsing psychedelia of Pink Floyd and punctuated by interviews with the likes of Michael Caine, David Hockney, Mick Jagger and other Sixties ‘faces’. It also captures the moment when the Rolling Stones’ concert here at the Hall in 1966 was interrupted by a rioting audience.

    The film will be introduced by distributor Tim Beddows and De Montfort University’s Professor Steve Chibnall, who will return for a post-film discussion hosted by music writer Jon Savage, also featuring co-curator of the Peter Whitehead Archive, Dr. Alissa Clarke.

    Supported by De Montfort University’s Cinema and Television History Research Centre (CATH)
