Nick made a much anticipated trip back to the DeMonontford Hall Leicester, to revisit the concert hall enriched with many memories for him. Nick has close connection with DeMonontfort Hall since 1972. He enjoyed the position of DeMontfort Halls official photographer for nearly 10 years. Being commissioned to shoot front and backstage artists, artwork featured in DeMontfort Hall magazines, promotional material programme and covers and content.
Nick also shot many artists at the famous Summer Sundae Festivals in association with DMH.
Nick recalled many cherished memories during his visit, particularly working with Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac) David Byrne (Talking Heads) Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders) and one of the big highlights for him Supertramp, plus a very personal chat with Amy Winehouse. Nick also recalled a lovely encounter with the much loved BBC Presenter Janice Long.
Accompanying Nick was Andy Blithe and the film crew of the award winning Aturn Films, continuing the filming of “The Story So Far,” a feature length documentary based on Nick’s life story and set for a 2022 release in cinemas and TV late in 2022.
“Fantastic to go back to DMH. This place was one of the very foundations of my career it really was.”
