The plaque unveiled by John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins and Dave Tomlin on the 23.03.2012 at the Zeitgeist 66 happening at the Tabernacle, Notting Hill to commemorate the early Pink Floyd gigs at the London Free School. Dave’s statement was that ‘you can have the sixties any time you want, there’s nothing stopping you’ Whilst Hoppy sagely mused that ‘Pot is fun, skunk is Junk’ : )

This was part of the Zeitgeist 66 happening, which took place at the Tabernacle, Notting Hill on the 23.03.2012
A fifteen minute glimpse into Zeitgeist 66, starting off with the Peter Wynne Willson’s wonderful lightshow that was dancing across the walls outside the Tabernacle, then the unveiling of the commemorative plaque, and finally some music from Dustaphonics and Sam Gopal’s dream… Big love to Mouse & Nick, JD, Hoppy, Dave Tomlin for making it happen and to everybody who turned up and made it a night to remember, bless : )
Smile, you’re on candid Camera!!!! The UFO Club was founded by John Hopkins (usually known as “Hoppy”) and Joe Boyd in an Irish dancehall called the “Blarney Club” in the basement of 31 Tottenham Court Road, London.
A UFO ‘reunion’; a ‘happening’ for 2012 with three bands full of legendary ‘musos’, an original oil-lamp light-show projection, magic, art, Jeff ‘Isle of Wight’ Dexter as MC/DJ, an exhibition of original IT and UFO artwork, and what ever else transpires… Some interesting performers, and many of the old ‘faces and heads’ have confirmed they’ll be along.
