Foundling Walk - Hogarth and his Contemporaries (second outing)

25 June 2014, 11:00 - 13:00

Janice Liverseidge leads a walking tour, Hogarth and his Contemporaries.

Tickets £9, £7 Concessions and Foundling Friends. To book, please visit the Foundling Museum Eventbrite page.

Meeting at Covent Garden Tube station.

Janice says: ‘We travel through the eighteenth century theatreland and coffee shops which would have been known to William Hogarth. We trace the path of Hogarth’s father-in-law, the celebrated James Thornhill, who lived in Covent Garden before learning more about St Martin’s Lane and Hogarth’s connections. Our walk takes us to the site of his home, through more theatrical and patronal connections, passing more places of relevance to George Frideric Handel before ending the walk at the Handel’s Parish Church near Bond Street tube station.’
