Musical St James’s & Mayfair
Sunday 3rd January 5pm (1700) London Time
MUSICAL ST JAMES’S & MAYFAIR CAN BE BOOKED AS PART OF THE LONDON CALLING SERIES – 6 VIRTUAL TOURS FOR £36 – OR AS AN INDIVIDUAL VIRTUAL TOUR FOR £10.
We’re off in search of music in both the royal quarter AND in the heart of fashionable 18th Century London – add the Swinging 60s as a leitmotif and this music tour covers the gamut from Handel to Judy Garland.
Is that Madness performing on top of Buckingham Palace alongside the Queen guitarist Brian May? It surely is.
And will his Royal Highness make an appearance on this online tour? Yes indeed… Mick Jagger!
Hendrix and Handel will make a cameo appearance (they star in their own virtual tours elsewhere in the London Walks programme)… a pre-fame Paul Simon sings his heart out… We’ll look at the life and death of 30s crooner Al Bowlly… The Beatles go out on top… Nipper the dog cocks an ear… and we’ll take a closer look to see if there really were angels dining at the Ritz.
From the high baroque to Bowie‘s most famous album sleeve, from Thomas Tallis to Louis Armstrong this is one of the most wide-ranging virtual music tours in the series.
