A guided walk by Fabian Watkinson and Adrian Hindle-Briscall

Another chance to come on this popular walk!

Hampstead in the twentieth century is well-known as a centre of intellectual life. Music-makers, both composers and performers, also made it their home, and we'll visit some of them in this walk. Mostly classical, but with lighter interludes for Gracie Fields and a fascinatingly crazy house once lived in by Boy George. Pictured are three important composers, two great performers, our first internationally famous conductor and an arranger who influenced a generation of English music. Qualified Camden tour guides will take you to the places, well-known streets and hidden alleys where they lived.

Hampstead is hilly and the walk may not be suitable for all. Please wear suitable shoes for the odd slippery path!
