PODCAST OF A TALK ON MARIE LLOYD ~ AS PERFORMED ON THE LONDON EYE ON MAY 1ST, 2014...


On May 1st, 2014, the VV was delighted to perform alongside other writers such as Claire Tomalin, Dan Cruikshank, Sir Andrew Motion, Kate Williams, D J Taylor and Robert Elms, when each gave a talk in a different pod for one revolution of the London Eye - each to tell a different story about a famous Londoner - each linked to a different London Borough.  

The event was organised by Stephen Coates of Antique Beat, and Suzette Field of A Curious Invitation in conjunction with Hendricks Gin - and it celebrated the first 15 years of this iconic structure's life.

The VV's subject was Marie Lloyd, the superstar of the music halls who was born in Hoxton, in the borough of Hackney, and this is a link on which you'll find  a live recording of that event.





Finally, this is a link to a previous post in which the VV published the transcript to her London Eye talk on Marie Lloyd.
