I’ll uncover just some of the characters from the LGBT world that have brought such colour to the area around Covent Garden and Soho. Let me tell you stories of famous names such as Oscar Wilde, Radclyffe Hall and King or rather…Queen James I! How has LGBT culture changed over the past 100 years? How is life in the Queer City today? Why are there gay symbols on the pedestrian crossing lights at Trafalgar Square?

Let’s follow the food trail in London taking on a nibble or two along the way. What are the origins of Fish and Chips? What’s the meaning of a Doner kebab? Is Yorkshire Pudding sweet or savoury?
