Description

Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent for reinvention.

But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from ‘David’ to Bowie.

In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie move into Haddon Hall, a sprawling Victorian villa in the suburbs of London.

Part commune, part creative hub, the house becomes home to a community of musicians and hippies and hangers on.

As egos clash and parties get out of hand, David keeps writing: ‘Changes’, ‘Kooks’, ‘Life on Mars’ - he begins producing songs that will propel him to global fame.

Charting Bowie’s personal life, the development of his music and the transformation of his image, Haddon Hall is an evocative portrait of a man presiding over a musical revolution.
