Publisher's Description

Back in January 1752, when Covent Garden was a seething pit of whores, cut-purses, vagabonds, pick-pockets and actors, Henry Fielding – author of Tom Jones and a local magistrate – published the very first Covent Garden Journal. Designed in part to publicise his crusading efforts to clean up this notoriously seedy district, Fielding’s Journal was packed with essays offering literary, social, and moral comment. Now here we are, following somewhat tardily in Fielding’s footsteps, with an all new Covent Garden Journal for the 21st century. Just like Fielding, we try to provide a bit of a window into Covent Garden’s soul, but unlike our forebear we eschew any campaigning, moralising or hand-wringing. And we have photographs and shiny paper. Our CGJ, which is currently published quarterly, is filled with culture, food, fashion, architecture, history and shopping, all of which is tackled with a level of verve, wit and sheer gorgeousness of design that you simply wouldn’t expect from a free magazine
