About this event

A Virtual Tour of Musical East London

Your guide is Adam Scott-Goulding

Musical East End

* The subject for this tour was chosen by public vote thanks to all who took part! If there’s an area of London that you think I should be exploring in a tour, drop me a line!

The world famous signature tune of London originates in The East End: Big Ben.

It’s one of the most richly historic areas of London. But if you’re looking for statues and plaques, you’ve come to the wrong place. In this part of town we’re away from the Knights, Dames, Lords and Ladies of the musical establishment.

What we CAN give you is Georgia Brown, voice as true and powerful as a Whitechapel bell; Hoxton’s own Marie Lloyd, the first female superstar of British pop and the queen of the double entendre. We met Lionel Bart, the great composer of Oliver! In the Musical Chelsea tour earlier in the series – we’ll find his roots here in the Jewish East End.

As for musical theatre… from the wondrous Theatre Workshop under Joan Littlewood to the ska & calypso musical The Big Life in the early 21st century, the East End has provided the West End with some of its most memorable stars and shows.

Along the way we’ll link Jewish cantors to The Clash, the Libertines to Alma Cogan and we’ll ask the question on everyone’s lips: “Who Do You Think You Are Kiddin’ Mister Hitler?”

Praise for Adam's online guiding events since March 2020…
