Decadent London Walk




I'll be leading a walk around 'Decadent London' on Saturday 26th August.  It starts at 3.00pm from Westminster Reference Library, St Martin's Street (Street not Lane), London, WC2 and will explore the area around Leicester Square, St James's and Piccadilly.  It's FREE.  It will end at a pub of course.

Bookings are through Eventbrite here.  I see that people have been booking already.  To avoid confusion, the theme is based on my book of the same name, which focusses on the 1890s in London and the writers, poets and artists living there at that time - it won't be a general tour of debauchery through the ages (you may be disappointed to read).  So expect to hear about the haunts of Oscar Wilde, Arthur Symons, Aubrey Beardsley, Aleister Crowley etc.

I'll try to bring along a few books to sell, including perhaps my next book which may be out by then.

I should add that the talk for the Friends of Lincoln's Inn Fields went very well and the opportunity to dine and drink afterwards al fresco in the heart of Lincoln's Inn was much appreciated.
