A Virtual Tour of Musical Marylebone

Your guide is Adam Scott-Goulding

Musical Marylebone

Medicine and cricket… that's Marylebone. Isn't it?

For once the showbiz and performing arts types have been elbowed off centre stage by the nurses, the doctors and the sportsmen. This tour aims to put the musicians back where they belong.

Marylebone is home to both BBC - from Teddy Bear's Picnic to Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood we'll delve into Auntie Beeb's often bothersome relationship with music.

The word-famous Proms music festival has its genesis in not one but TWO Marylebone concert halls.

Its streets have been home to such pillars of the English classical music establishment as Sir Henry Wood and Constant Lambert - as well as music hall (vaudeville) venues at the other end of the musical class system.

One of London's most scandalous pleasure gardens is buried beneath its polite, geometric elegance - where we'll find the music of Henry Purcell and more.

Paul McCartney composed Yesterday in Marylebone.

So we'll ask the medicos to move aside for an hour or so - although in Hector Berlioz who lived in the area we have a representative of both the medical AND musical communities.

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

"Really brightened up our quarantine!"

Catherine Gritz on the 28th March episode of Big Smoke Radio Nite

"Thanks for cheering us up!"

Sandra Huwels on the 11th April episode of Big Smoke Radio Nite

"Your positivity and your shows are a force for good in the world."

Ian Grieve on the 4th April episode of Big Smoke Radio Nite

"Fab!"

BBC Radio London
