Nightclubbing with Radicals in Soho (1915-1965)
Saturday 8 July and Saturday 19 August, 2.00pm-4.00pm

This walking tour will trace the web of narrow streets in the central London neighbourhood of Soho. Once known as London's 'negro quarter', we will explore the nightclubs, bars and restaurants of Soho. Tracing the stories of the Caribbean pioneers who brought jazz to London during the First World War, the cafe that was a home to icons of the Pan African movement, the clubs where future statesmen gained their training in political organising and the man responsible for bringing Jamaicans to Brixton. We will explore the Black club owners, musicians, dancers, politicians and poets, and how nightclubbing in Soho changed history.

Walk specially curated for the Black Sound exhibition by Kelly Foster, London Blue Badge Guide. This walking tour will last approximately two hours.

£10, £7 concessions (includes under 25s)

*Please note the exact meeting location will be shared with all booked participants two days before the tour.
