British Art icon Sir Peter Blake has taken inspiration from his most-famous piece of work, The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club album cover, to create a new piece of artwork especially for The Vintage Festival. Sir Peter has re-looked at the icons for the renowned artwork from 1967 and selected people who have inspired his creative career over the past six decades to mark his 80th birthday celebrations.

Sir Peter Blake says: “I've chosen people I admire, great people and some who are dear friends. I had a very long-list of people who I wanted to go in but couldn’t fit everyone in - I think that shows how strong British culture and its legacy of the last six decades is.”

“When they told me I had been chosen I was obviously very chuffed. It’s nice to be recognised by as great an artist as Sir Peter Blake. To be on there with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Mick Jagger and Paul Weller, just those three people alone, is amazing for me as I wouldn’t put myself up with any of those.” ~ Noel Gallagher

“How lovely to be part of Sir Peter’s new creation...and exciting to find out who I will be next to. I can't believe Sir Peter is 80." ~ Tracey Emin
