Tour: Behind the Magic Curtain

The magic of London’s Theatreland is something no visitor to the capital should miss, but what is its story? And is today’s Theatreland really just a collection of over-decorated, over-priced playhouses that have nothing to offer the modern theatregoer?

From melodrama and farce to world theatre, from dodging the censor to encouraging the amateurs, see how the playhouses of London’s Theatreland have contributed to the development of performance in this country and beyond.

Please meet me outside the James Street Exit, Covent Garden Underground Station: look out for my blue 'Footprints of London' hi-vis waistcoat. The tour finishes on Whitehall, near Trafalgar Square.
