Events in London – 27 April

Need some inspiration for 27th April? The first performance of Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks today in 1749. Unfortunately the event came to an abrupt end when some fireworks set the pavillion on fire. How about visiting Handel’s House? – it’s the same place Jimi Hendrix lived two hundred years later.
