Sgt. Pepper’s 1967 press launch party

Barrie Wentzell was one of the photographers at the press launch held at Brian Epstein’s house in London’s Chapel Street in May 1967 – the first time that The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band LP was played to the assembled media – and today we share some of his photographs from that day with you. 

Barrie recalls the days fondly – “This was the first time I’d met and photographed The Beatles. It was at the launch party for Sgt. Pepper at Brian Epstein’s house in Belgravia –  a very posh part of London. There were people there from the press and elsewhere, and The Beatles were walking around talking and laughing. I was taking a few shots inside the house when Derek Taylor, their wonder press officer, suggested all the press and photographers go outside and we’ll do some pictures by the door. I managed to crawl up to the front through the crowd and get this picture (above) of the “Fab Four”.
