London Borough of Charley!

This show centres on Borough in Southwark, one of the oldest parts of the capital. It demands an experienced guide: meet Charley Harrison of London Tailored Tours.

She takes your round the 1,000-year-old Borough Market, a foodie’s paradise, sampling cheese and oysters along the way. After a reflective moment by the River Thames, hear about a unique cemetery and finish off in a pub with a modern twist called The Gladstone Arms, which boasts a connection to recording stars including Ellie Goulding.

State of London: A Letter from London

London’s been taking a real hit recently. Three terror attacks in as many months, plus the horror of the Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington. Newly re-elected Prime Minister has apologised for ‘failures of state’, but what state is London actually in? And, using the word differently,  should it actually be a state of its own?

In this second Letter from London monologue, Adrian Lacey reflects on tragedy, triumph and ‘8.6 million reasons to listen’. There are lighter moments around the M25 and Brighton & Hove. After all, London life must go on…

Terror & Tenderness: London Attack

London’s terror attack on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 in Westminster left five people dead and over 40 injured. Here, Adrian Lacey retraces the route of both the attacker, Khalid Masood and the medical staff from St Thomas’ Hospital who ran across Westminster Bridge towards the Houses of Parliament to help the victims.

Hear from a London firefighter and his family as they visit the area days after the atrocity, plus Adrian’s personal reflections on having walked the same route a few years before having been a patient at St Thomas’.

This show is dedicated to the memory of the deceased victims of the attack – PC Keith Palmer, Kurt Cochran, Aysha Frade and Leslie Rhodes – and with condolences to their friends and family and with thoughts and well wishes for the injured.
