A walk on the Wild Side – the Secret Side of Soho

An exploration of Soho – a part of London which developed as a fashionable new district in the late 17th century and soon became somewhat less reputable. In the 19th century, greek and italian immigrants opened restaurants and shops and as the 20th century progressed the sex industry boomed.

Soho was the hang out of some fabulous characters. It was – and still is – home to many film companies, as well as many music venues. And it was where some of the most famous music of the late 1960s and 1970s was recorded. “A Walk on the Wild Side” the quintiessential song about New York street life was even recorded here in a Soho studio!

£12 (£9 concessions) Advance booking only at:

One thought on “Come on one of my walks …

  1. Just reminiscing about my childhood in SW 18 I used to live on the east hill estate near st georges hospital dad had a shop in st John’s hill called the radio shack (not the USA one) used to walk to clapham junction and the other way to the high street to the Arndale centre then onto king georges park in the 70s I used to go to Eltringham school near that concrete roundabout – dare say east hill has been redeveloped by now? Hated the smell of hops from the Brewery !
