Drury Lane is Minimum Labyrinth's new guided walking tour for 2021.

Robert Kingham (presenter of Pagan London) explores the rich cultural history of one of London’s most colourful, creative and dangerous quarters. Squalor, crime, politics and plague provide the scenery for a teeming cast of rakes and poets, actors and gamblers, playwrights and pickpockets, Freemasons and highwaymen, engravers and compositors, gunpowder plotters and pornographers, butchers and beadles, judges and jail-breakers, suffragettes and whores, in a story that stretches from Anglo-Saxon settlers on the shores of the Thames to the starched pomp of the British Empire.

We promise you a bawdy, boozy bacchanal, bursting with everything you have come to expect from master storytellers Minimum Labyrinth: obscure factlets, dramatic sweeps of history, dark mysteriousness, musical protrusions and theatrical surprises.
