Nick Esdaile and Joe Fellows’ short film  ‘Lennon’s Poster’ follows the recreation of the Pablo Fanque circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite’ for the Beatles album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. Using the traditional methods of wood engraving and letterpress printing, Peter Dean and his team of experts bring to life Lennon’s poster.

John Lennon bought this victorian circus poster in 1967 and the words inspired him to write ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite’ on Sgt Pepper.
