Bed in at the Bluecoat, with Chuck Perkins

A re-staging of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Bed-In for Peace, this programme of 62 events over 62 continuous days marked the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s death and what would have been his 70th birthday. Proposals were invited from artists and the public to do 'something for a better world,' using a large bed, positioned in Bluecoat's foyer area, the Hub. This image shows American artist Chuck Perkins and musicians presenting jazz poetry.
