We will be hosting a "pop up" exhibition in collaboration with The British Record Shop Archive, highlighting "Bowie's Soho" as part of Record Store Day, 35 Beak St from 14-21 April.

David Bowie's love of music was nurtured by record shops in suburban Bromley where he frequented three shops: Medhurst's department shop, Roberston's music shop and Furlong's, a record shop where he briefly worked as a Saturday boy. 

When David Jones - as he was still known then - moved into Soho as a teenager with dreams of stardom he continued to frequent record shops with Dobell's jazz, blues and folk shop on Charing Cross Road & HMV's Oxford Street shop being his favourites. Young David Jones would visit various record shops in the UK to promote his debut 45. Throughout his life he spoke fondly of the London record shops that helped shape his sound and vision.

As part of the exhibition we have organised 2 Tours of Bowie's Soho.

The Georgian Dining Academy

The Georgian Dining Academy is hosted by Miss B and Miss Kitty Pridden. It all began by creating a quarterly historic dining experience at Simpson's Tavern in the heart of the City. An evening spent within the candlelit booths of a historic chop house, enjoying a carefully crafted three course meal, gaming with chocolate coins and regaled with tales of the 18th Century. Guests are encouraged to dress up for the evening, several of our regulars have created vibrant Georgian characters that they bring to life at each event. We have gone from strength to strength in our endeavor to create a Georgian world in the 21st Century.
