Handel & Hogarth and 18C contemporaries around Covent Garden
Meet: On the steps of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square
We continue our popular series of pre-performance walks on musical and Georgian themes with Blue Badge Guide Janice Liverseidge. Each walk is specially tailored to allow for arrival in good time for the relevant performance later that day or evening.
In tonight’s early evening stroll, we learn about the artistic connections with St Martin’s Lane, including Hogarth and Chippendale. We find out about the life of this great artist and his links with Handel. We also discover the historical and colourful background to Covent Garden and the musical heritage of the area, including singers and composers. We finish our walk at the Royal Opera House.
Tickets: £15 per walk or £10 if you come to the performance afterwards. Walks need to be booked in advance.
