Handel & Hendrix in London chosen for Historic England’s top 10 places for Music & Literature
We’re very excited to announce that we have been included in the 10 places chosen by author Monica Ali for Historic England’s campaign A History of England in 100 Places. The campaign aims to find the 100 places which bring England’s extraordinary history to life and, as well as us, includes the likes of Abbey Road Studios, The 100 Club, The Haçienda, and Charles Dickens’ house.
Judge Monica Ali said about Handel & Hendrix in London:
“What a pair! Handel’s popularity remains undimmed by time and a million Messiahs sung by local choral societies. Hendrix’s impact on blues, jazz, rock and soul was extraordinary – a brilliant talent that burned so bright and so briefly.”
