LondonTown: Royal music celebrated at London’s Foundling Museum

One of London’s most fascinating small museums, the Foundling Museum near King’s Cross, has revealed its first big exhibition for 2014. By George! Handel’s Music For Royal Occasions will celebrate the music composed by German-born George Frederic Handel for the royal family on the 300th anniversary of the coronation of George I, the first monarch from the house of Hanover.

For a great selection of restaurants to visit in the area, visit LondonTown.com, London’s most reliable website for tourist information in London.

The Foundling Museum was created in 2004 to tell the story of the Foundling Hospital, which was founded in 1714 as a home for abandoned children. The hospital was a success thanks to generosity of key patrons, including Handel and artists William Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. Now the Foundling Museum will celebrate the relationship with Handel with this special exhibition, which features treasures from the Foundling Museum’s Gerald Coke Handel Collection as well as loans from the British Library, National Portrait Gallery and British Museum and never before seen items from the archives of Westminster Abbey. No composer has been more closely associated with the British monarchy than Handel, whose Zadok the Priest   has been performed at every coronation since George II’s in 1727, and Water Music   was performed in 2012 on the Thames for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Lord Mayor’s Show fireworks return for 2013

The Lord Mayor’s Show takes place on Saturday 9th November and this year the fireworks make a spectacular return. Last year the display was cancelled due to financial constraints and safety concerns but with a number of adaptations they are back for 2013. The display is London’s grandest firework show, with river barges piled high with explosives and set adrift on the Thames. To see the show in all its glory, spectators should position themselves between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridges or around Embankment and Gabriel’s Wharf – all the roads and both bridges will be closed to traffic. For those travelling from outside of the capital, a wide range of cheap London hotels can be found on LondonTown.com.

The fireworks are often considered the main attraction but they are in fact just the conclusion to the day’s procession. The Lord Mayor’s Show has been taking place on the streets of London for nearly 800 years, following the tradition that the newly elected Mayor of London would travel upriver to give his oath. More than three and a half miles long, the parade involves 6,000 people and fills the entire space between Bank and Aldwych. A crowd of around half a million is expected to gather and enjoy the show of military marching bands, Chinese acrobats, a procession of decorated floats and a gilded State Coach that the Lord Mayor travels in. The parade leaves Mansion House at 11am and returns by the embankment between 1pm and 2.30pm, and the fireworks commence at 5pm.
