Carnaby EchoesUnveiling the many layers of Carnaby Street's musical heritage, Carnaby Echoes is a new commission by artist Lucy Harrison. Through a series of plaques on key buildings and with the help of contributors such as Boy George, Mark Ellen and Dynamo, the commission looks back at the history of London's trendiest street, from the opening of Jazz Club Murray's on Beak Street in 1913 right through to present day. There will also be a walking tour app, which will enable audiences to bring the street's stories, sounds and performances back to life as they trace the steps of hundreds of music pioneers. Furthermore, an exhibition at 20 Foubert's Place will present original clothing from The Foundry Store, club signs and vintage vinyl.

 

About Carnaby Street

The name Carnaby Street is synonymous with 1960s "Swinging London" - a phrase coined by Time magazine. Nowadays the area has gone through something of a revival and is once again boasting cutting edge designer talents and trendy street ware. With over 140 shops, bars and restaurants to choose from in the area, it's definitely worth a visit. More about Carnaby Street
