“People’s behaviour away from Belgravia would leave you aghast!”
Noel Coward, Marvellous Party
This marvellous party of a virtual tour is a two-neighbourhood affair (see also the Musical Mayfair & St James’s virtual tour) and tour musical tour will take in everything from music hall (vaudeville) to baroque.
On Side One we’ll mooch around the stuccoed squares and mews of Belgravia, tracing its history and tracking down Noel Coward, Kitty Stevens, Frederic Chopin and Brian Epstein (among others).
Turning over to Side Two, Henry Purcell will dominate – the great man of English baroque was born, lived, worked and died within a few square miles in Westminster. He’ll be ably supported by David Bowie, Stevie Wonder and Shane MacGowan of the Pogues.
Pomp, power and posh squares – from the movers and shakers of Parliament to high society in Belgrave Square, welcome to Belgravia and Westminster.
