“London…. A grim, yet burdened and plaintive sound — the dim roar of traffic in the Tottenham Court Road — the far thunder of trams where the Hampstead Road began — the yelling of children in Warren Street near by….” (The Midnight Bell, by Patrick Hamilton).
Fitzrovia Festival is a non-commercial celebration of the neighbourhood’s life and history through literature, exhibitions, guided walks and other community events. The first Fitzrovia Festival was held in June 1973.
