Covent Garden Continued…

As we glide into the second week of August, we cross the half way point of photographer Nigel Dicker’s beautiful tribute to one of London’s most beloved landmarks, Covent Garden, currently on show at Freud London.  In the spirit of continued celebration, as the local festival unfolds, we thought there no better time to bring news of a new local broadcasting channel, Covent Garden Broadcast Media, soon to grace our online airways.  Telling tales of those whose lives have been touched by the market’s past and present, the channel will trace the history of Covent Garden’s celebrated attractions – the Market, Opera, Ballet and Social History Archive – to unearth all that makes this beloved central hotspot what it is today.

‘It’s vitally important to remember what Covent Garden looked like in its previous life’ – Michael Palin, 2014

So if you have not already, why not come and explore Covent Garden for yourselves.  A retrospective of the Old Market can be enjoyed here at Freud until 30th August. With the holidays in full swing, it seems the perfect moment to pop over and enjoy it with a cocktail (or coffee!) before nipping down Neil Street to join in the fun.  And to add to the excitement, Freud is offering 50p ‘babyccinos’ for kids until September!
