The Heritage of London Trust are putting on a concert of London songs at Bush Hall, Shepherd’s Bush on 22 September 2016.
Be transported into London’s vibrant streetscape and its darkest corners, meet its lavender-sellers and Thames boatmen, 19th century émigrés and the Bloomsbury set through exquisite songs and readings.
With music ranging from folksong, Laura Marling and Ralph McTell to Noel Coward, Gershwin and William Walton, and spoken word extracts including Zadie Smith, Neil Gaiman, Richard Rider, Virginia Woolf and many more, the highs and lows of London life will be brought to life in a kaleidoscope of characters and colour. Thought-provoking, evocative and enthralling, this stunning evening is not to be missed.
Tickets cost £15 (plus booking fee) and are available here.
