WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
See where the giants of the literary world ate, drank, discussed, thought and worked. The pubs and taverns that inspired some of the greatest creative minds in the world - and still do. This unique tour is artist-led and arranged by the not-for-profit charity the Maverick Theatre Company. It involves local writers and artists from London's West End and the UK TV and Film industry. We are delighted to announce that the late Charles Dickens and the late Virginia Woolf have agreed to host the tour. It takes in not only the history of literature in London but some of its contemporary places and spaces too and looks at some key elements in our writers lives. Starting in Fitzrovia, and ending in Soho, our tour also includes those pubs and bars around the British Film industry and contemporary writers. So you never know who you might bump into...!
Please meet at the Fitzroy Tavern, Charlotte Street, London W1. Advance booking essential
