Medicine and cricket… that’s Marylebone. Isn’t it?
In Marylebone, showbiz and performing arts types have been elbowed out of the spotlight by the nurses, the doctors and the sportsmen.
This tour aims to put the musicians back where they belong: centre stage.
Marylebone is home to the BBC – from Teddy Bear’s Picnic to Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood we’ll delve into Auntie Beeb’s often bothersome relationship with music.
The world-famous Proms music festival has its genesis in not one but TWO Marylebone concert halls.
Its streets have been home to such pillars of the English classical music establishment as Sir Henry Wood and Constant Lambert – as well as music hall (vaudeville) venues at the other end of the musical class system.
One of London’s most scandalous pleasure gardens is buried beneath Marylebone’s polite, geometric elegance – where we’ll find the music of Handel and more.
Paul McCartney composed Yesterday in Marylebone.
So we’ll ask the medicos to move aside for an hour or so – although in Hector Berlioz who lived in the area we have a representative of both the medical AND musical communities – and reveal the history of Marylebone through its music and musicians.
