SOHO SALON: THE SOHO SPECTACULARS LONDON'S FORGOTTEN THEATRICAL PLEASURES
Join us as London historian Peter Berthoud pulls back the curtain on the stories of the curious and sometimes bizarre forms of entertainment that were once part of Soho life. From Georgian rock music to a singing mouse, aquatic dramas to gigantic panoramas and all sorts of street based oddities. Hear of a man with a most harmonious chin, be titilated by a Smock Race and marvel at the grand exhibits that once thrilled previous visitors to Soho.
