The Soho Society Hour


Soho is a remarkable square mile with a remarkable history. From around the end of the seventeenth century it was already an established residential district and has housed such luminaries as Karl Marx, Casanova, Canaletto, William Blake, Isaac Newton, Dr Johnson and the great composers Haydn and Mozart.

The Soho Society was formed in 1972 “to make Soho a better place in which to live, work or visit.” Then as now the principal aims of the Soho Society are to protect the interests of residents and businesses and to enhance the environment which we all share.

Each week Clare Lynch and Leslie Hardcastle MBE, President of the Soho Society welcomes in guests connected with Soho and attempts to answer the question, ‘what is Soho to them?’
