Are you curious about the atmosphere of 18th century London when Handel lived? You can experience it with our Blue badge guide @janiceliverseidge who is running three walks this Festival season.
Our journey on 2 April will take you from the route to the gallows and gin drinking of the 18th century passing by churches including a Hawksmoor gem and one on the site of a former Leper hospital. We walk through squares from the Hanoverian period, learning about the growth of London, visitors who came from abroad to adopt the capital as their home, and the streets walked by Handel during his lifetime.
We will meet at 5:30pm at St George's in Bloomsbury, Bloomsbury Way WC1 (not Hanover Square) and we will finish in time for the evening concert 'Princely Patronage – Alfred (Arne) & Ode to Saint Cecilia HWV 76' at 7:30pm at St George's, Hanover Square.
Tickets must be booked in advance and are £15. Link in bio
