Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The Odeon Covent Garden









The Odeon Covent Garden on Shaftesbury Avenue used to be The Saville Theatre. Opened as a theatre in 1931 and then became a music venue in the 1960s before being converted into a cinema in 1970







The original frieze on the exterior of the building is called 'Drama through the ages'.

  8. The first pic is perfect : I like the composition with the fish ; it looks just like if it was in a tank... But I love the whole serie : it is so nice of you to make us discover the architecture of the building...
