Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens around 1750

Posted in Actors, Dance, Famous Composers, Famous landmarks, Fashion, Historical articles, History, Leisure, London, Music, Sinners, Theatre on Sunday, 22 November 2015

This delightfully drawn and colourful picture shows the beauty and attraction of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. This was the name given to Spring Gardens, a pleasure resort which had opened sometime before the Restoration. During the eighteenth century its popularity increased, and soon the most fashionable and disreputable figures in society flocked there for the musical and semi-theatrical entertainments, which included the music of Handel and other great Baroque composers played by the elevated orchestra, clearly visible in the picture.
