Live from the Stowe School

Today we traveled outside of London to tour the library at the Stowe School. The school is housed within the Stowe House, a large estate built for Sir Richard Temple beginning in 1676. In 1923 the Stowe School was established. The school operates in the original building and many of the rooms have been restored based upon archival evidence concerning the estates original architecture. In addition to the beautiful building, Stowe School also boasts magnificent gardens. Our group enjoyed a wonderful and informative tour but there is one thing that was not brought up, a special performance by the Beatles in January 1963! Listen to John Bloomfield’s first hand account of the concert in this special BBC Radio clip.http://audioboo.fm/boos/991933-a-rare-performance-by-the-beatles-at-stowe-school-in-buckinghamshire
