On this evening’s walk we will hear about the explosive events surrounding Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks in the park where it all happened, view one of the grandest Georgian houses in London and learn about the relationship between Handel and the royal family and the music he wrote for them. We will view the shops and clubs frequented by royalty and much more, including a secret square and the best dressed man in London. We then make our way to St George’s Church in time for our evening concert.
