If streets could sing!
Explore places where world-famous melodies were born – with a tour by bike, by night with historians and a live band performance along the way! From Handel to Hendrix, from Diaghilev to Freddie Mercury.
Start with Handel in the 18th Century, building a profitable opera-making business (or even businesses!) in the capital. The premiere of his music for Royal fireworks created a 3 hour traffic jam back in 1749. Then, it’s off to the Victorians and the birth of mass culture as we know it. Invoke the grandeur of the Monster Concerts! Started by Louis Jullien, the concerts were given by orchestras featuring thousands of musicians who played to crowds exceeding 12 000 people.
Expect a 3 hours relaxed bicycle ride with 6 stops featuring comments by international experts on British music scene and finest melodies to hum along.
