Event Details

25 June 2014, 11:00 - 13:00

Janice Liverseidge leads a walking tour, Hogarth and his Contemporaries.

Tickets £9, £7 Concessions and Foundling Friends.

Meeting at Covent Garden Tube station.

Janice says: ‘We travel through the eighteenth century theatreland and coffee shops which would have been known to William Hogarth. We trace the path of Hogarth’s father-in-law, the celebrated James Thornhill, who lived in Covent Garden before learning more about St Martin’s Lane and Hogarth’s connections. Our walk takes us to the site of his home, through more theatrical and patronal connections, passing more places of relevance to George Frideric Handel before ending the walk at the Handel’s Parish Church near Bond Street tube station.’

The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. Through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events we celebrate the ways in which artists of all disciplines have been inspired to improve children’s lives since 1740. 


The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children’s charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Captain Thomas Coram, as ‘a hospital for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children’. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth who encouraged all the leading artists of the day to donate work, and the composer George Frideric Handel who gave annual benefit concerts of the Messiah. In doing so, they created London’s first public art gallery and set the template for the way that the arts could support philanthropy. The Foundling Museum celebrates their vision and continues their work, by enabling today’s artists, musicians and writers to work alongside vulnerable young people and to cast new light on the histories we tell.
