ARTS AND MUSIC IN SOUTH KENSINGTON
Kensington during Handel’s lifetime was rural farmland but just 100 years later had become the focus of the World’s attention with the Great Exhibition of 1851. Tonight’s walk takes us around ‘Albertopolis’ with its wealth of museums and many musical connections and includes a hidden tower and the former home of the Royal College of Organists. We finish
at the Royal College of Music’s Britten Theatre for a performance of Ariodante.
JANICE LIVERSEIDGE is a Blue Badge Guide and Director of Communications and Marketing at the Royal Society of Medicine. She is a Handel enthusiast and very knowlegeable about London.
