The History Today Podcast: May 8th

In this episode of the podcast, David Coke describes life at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, and recounts how the artist William Hogarth helped it survive during a period when its future seemed uncertain.

David's article about the Gardens, Patriotism and Pleasure, is published in the May issue of History Today, and it can also be read by online subscribers. We also have a slideshow of images from the Gardens on our blog.
