Edith Grove

Edith Grove

One of the galleries in Exhibitionism that has gotten some of the most attention (and rightly so) is the recreation of the band's Edith Grove flat. In 1962, Brian Jones moved into West London with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and James Phelge. The address was 102 Edith Grove and like many young men in bands their home was an absolute mess with clothes, dirty dishes and old fag ends and empty beer bottles everywhere!

Exhibitionism has allowed fans to walk into history with an incredibly detailed recreation of the flat complete with a distinct smell that you have to experience in person to describe!

'The milk bottles were just growing this . stuff. It was very much like that, the kitchen particularly,' Charlie Watts commented.

The band were instrumental in bringing their old home to life again and whilst no photos exist of the flat it would become the launchpad for an amazing legacy.

Keith recollected, 'It was definitely a time when we were working hard, learning the blues, endlessly, all night… imbibing it. It was a major part of the band coming together.’
