June meeting and AGM

June 26, 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00

Come along to hear Martin Collison talk about Carrots, Culture and Courtisans followed by our AGM.

This presentation includes the early history of Covent Garden, its “change of use” from the centre of the Bawdy & Bagnio houses catering for the rakes in Georgian England to its current position as a premier tourist meeting place for street entertainment. It will also include the cultural aspects of the area, particularly the nearby Royal Opera House. There is one slightly “racy” slide that I pre-warn people about; I’ve never had a problem with it but you should know about it.

Venue: Jennings Street Community Centre, Jennings Street, Rodbourne, SN2 2BG
