Event description

Description

Join City of Westminster Guide and lifetime Londoner Colin Davey for a post-festivities stroll through one of London's most intriguing areas, where history book stories, arts, entertainment and sleaze, co-exist, and that once was known as the centrepiece of the Wild West End. For some, nostalgia rules, and threats to long-established Soho businesses are met with public resistance; for others, progress inexorably means regeneration, with new names appearing, and a "cleaning up" of the seedier side of the area. As we go around, taking in some readings from literature connected to this London village, we will consider where Soho is going. We meet outside Boots on the north side of Piccadilly (Piccadilly and Bakerloo lines; Victoria and Jubilee lines at Green Park tube, 10 minutes walk away).
