Enjoy The Birth of Modern Theatreland: Covent Garden and the Two Theatres Royal – a lecture by Professor Simon Thurley

The excellent talks given throughout the year by Gresham College’s invited speakers are always worth seeing. Occasionally, theatre and arts-related talks come up, and I am happy to recommend them to you.

Here is a recent talk given by Professor Simon Thurley about the early incarnations of theatre in London in an area we today call Theatreland.

In this, the second lecture in the series Buildings in the West End of London, Professor Thurley looks at the significance and impact of these three great institutions on the development of London.

The talk lasts 51 minutes and is free to view whenever you have time.
