3:30 pm - Jo Wood 'Stoned: Photographs & Treasures From Life With The Rolling Stones'

Blackwell's is thrilled to be welcoming Jo Wood as part of our Yule Fest weekend. Jo will be exploring her new book 'Stoned' which focuses on her years with the Rolling Stones, offering an unseen personal insight to the world's greatest Rock 'N' Roll Band. 'Stoned' contains over 500 never-before-seen photographs, notes, artworks, diary entries and mementoes from life behind the scenes of the Rolling Stones.

Married to legendary Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood for 30 years, Jo Wood lived the rock star life. Her incredible collection of treasures from that time is a once-in-a-lifetime look inside the biggest band in the world.

Accompanied by personal memories and behind the scenes anecdotes from Jo, Stoned is a love letter to the rock ‘n’ roll life and a truly unique window into the eye of the Rolling Stones hurricane.

Jo Wood‘s career began as a fashion model in the 1970s. She met Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood at a party in 1977 and fell in love, marrying him in 1985 and remaining together until their split in 2009. They remain friends. Today, she has an award-winning range of body care products and regularly appears on television and in magazines.

This event is free to register. Please note, the talks may be taking place in our Philosophy Department which is only accessible via a small set of stairs. Seats are allocated on a first come first seated basis, to ensure you have a seat please arrive early, standing room only will be available once all seats have been taken.
