Pop at the Mill – photos from Richard Smith

‘Pop at the Mill’ was an open air pop festival which went out live on Saturday nights during the summer of 1977.

The set was built on the back lawn, behind the main Pebble Mill office block.

P.A. Gail Herbert remembers working on ‘Pop At The Mill’, ‘these were great fun. Carol Morgan, Sam Watkins & I used to work as camera bashers and one day one of those large cameras (I think it was Phil Wilson operating) ran straight over my toe – blimey it was sore!’

Pebble Mill Open Day – brochure from Stuart Gandy

Copyright resides with the original holder. No reproduction without permission.

This brochure was produced for a Pebble Mill Open Day, probably from the late 1980s or 1990.  The building would open its doors to the public, and showcase the productions made there.  Live studio shows would be staged throughout the day, and in fact proved a great training opportunity for staff to try out new skills like multi camera directing.

Thanks to Stuart Gandy for keeping this brochure safe over the years, and for making it available – and it’s been signed by Ed Doolan!
