In 1968, over two hundred years after Handel's death, Jimi Hendrix moved into the top-floor flat of the house where Handel wrote some of his greatest works, among them The Messiah.

Marking the 40th anniversary of the death of the legendry guitarist, the exhibition brings together a variety of media, including, film clips, hand-written lyrics and music, to celebrate the musician's brief but highly productive career in London which led to worldwide acclaim and changed modern music forever.
