Beckton’s Harry the Head rocks
A giant mascot from a children’s hospice learnt about rock and roll after dining at the iconic Hard Rock Cafe.
The mascot, called Harry the Head, is fronting Richard House Children’s Hospice’s Rainbow of Nations series. Its aim to raise awareness of the hospice across the various communities it serves as well as celebrating the diverse nature of the capital.
Each week Richard House is focussing on a different continent and recently it was the turn of North America. Harry the Head, was treated to lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe before heading down to the Vault where he learnt about America’s rock and roll history.
Lucy Wedderburn, Operations Manager at the Hard Rock Cafe, said: “It was totally awesome to see Harry the Head down here having lunch and enjoying our delicious American fare.
“Afterwards Harry checked out our museum, where he rocked out on Gene Simmons guitar before chilling on Jimi Hendrix’s bench.”
