Handel’s patrons and London’s nobility
Meet: Green Park Underground, south side exit on
Piccadilly (Green Park side)
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.
On this walk we learn about the explosive events surrounding Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks in the park where it all happened, before meandering around St James’s with its coaching inns and shops frequented by the nobility to St James’s Square and much more – including a secret square and the best-dressed man in London. We finish at St George’s, Hanover Square in time for this evening’s concert.
Tickets: £15 per walk or £10 if you come to the performance afterwards. Walks need to be booked in advance.
