Event description

Description

'Literary Covent Garden: Towards A New Sensibility'. This walk uses the plays, novels, letters and diary entries of Covent Garden luminaries from The Restoration to The Napoleonic Wars to examine a new kind of urban thinking as London's star rises. From the theatres, coffee houses, pubs and brothels we hear extracts from Fielding, John Gay, Jane Austen, Charles Lamb, John Evelyn, Samuel Pepys and others.
