Handel & Hendrix at Brook Street Comics by Maxime Galbe

Thank you for your interest in taking part in this showcase of the creative talents of our brilliant followers during the lockdown. We have recently started a Handel & Hendrix at Brook Street comic illustration series by artist Maxime Galbe over on our Instagram stories, and we’re inviting you to send us your own comical creations.

Handel died at 25 Brook Street in his bedroom in 1759 and funnily enough Hendrix once said he saw the composer’s ghost when he lived next-door in 1969 with his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham. For our first comic story we chose to retell this funny ‘true story’ of Brook Street by depicting Hendrix brandishing his guitar to fight off a spooky phantom Handel.

From all the fabulous submissions we receive, we’ll pick a winner who will be reposted on our Instagram story, plus a very special prize of 2 free admission tickets when the museum re-opens and £20 to spend in our gift shop.

Share this competition and your comments about our comics series with your family, your friends, and your colleagues. We’d love to see as many people involved as possible.

Get your 18th-century wigs and purple velour pants on and good luck!
