From the Pleasure Gardens to the Theatres

The Vauxhall Band, alongside historic dance specialists Mary Collins and Steven Player, soprano and actress Eloise Irving, and actor Alan Cheeseman, present a night out in London - eighteenth-century style.

This vibrant celebration of historic London’s diverse creative arts, which will take place in the heart of theatreland at St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden, is inspired by research into the lives of eighteenth-century freelance musicians, dancers and actors who performed at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and the West End theatres, and lived in the neighbouring streets to the church.
