VIRTUAL TOUR

From Tilbury Dock to Richmond, the narrative for this virtual tour rises in the east and sets in the west – a day in the life of London Music.

At Tilbury we’ll cheer the arrival of the calypsonians of the Windrush generation in 1948 – and at Richmond we’ll see where black music was woven in to the fabric of post-war British youth experience. 

George Frederic Handel will serenade us from Whitehall to Chelsea;  The Kinks’ Ray Davies paints a riverside picture as vivid as any Monet. Meanwhile the filth and the fury of the Sex Pistols will rock the boat.  And there are riverside venues aplenty from the O2 to the Royal Festival Hall and Eel Pie Island.

The musical history of London just keeps rolling along. What better place to chart its flow than on the river that founded this mighty city?
