Welcome to Cheapside. This week, you’ll be listening to voices from the Cheapside area – as we hear stories from the characters that make London the vibrant and wonderful place we know and love. Meet Alderman William Russell, the 692nd Lord Mayor of the City of London; Rev George Bush of St Mary-le-Bow; Alison Gowman, Alderman of the City of London; Gareth Banner, Director of The Ned, and the people of Bow Lane.
Find out how The Ned got its name, what it means to be a real Cockney and lots more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sounds of Cheapside.
