The Goons and Finnegan

The Goons and Finnegan

The legendary radio programme 'The Goon Show' born here.

Location: 2 Strutton Ground, SW1P 2HP

Description: Time passes by and things and names change... which is the case here, the 'Finnegan's Wake' pub is now called 'The Strutton Arms'. But this doesn't take away from the fact that this very establishment has a very special place in British Broadcasting Comedy history.

It was in the then 'Finnegan's Wake' that a certain Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers planned the now legendary radio programme 'The Goon Show'.

Now for those not in the picture, The Goon Show was a British radio show that started in 1951 and ran until 1960. It changed the face of British comedy and still maintains its influence to this day!

Now go to the boozer and pay homage to a comedy hotspot.
