Relighting the beacon

The redeveloped Denmark Street will relight the beacon for British musicians, placing them all on an international platform aided by the massive increase in footfall from Outernet London and Crossrail’s new Elizabeth line.

Jimi Hendrix

A mecca for musicians

For over 100 years Denmark Street has been a mecca for musicians and the music industry. Music shops, publishing empires, recording studios and rehearsal spaces gave the street its unique ambience attracting writers such as Lennon & McCartney, Bernie Taupin & Elton John, and Lionel Bart - father of the west-end musical.

The UK’s Tin Pan Alley

Artists who would go on to dominate rock and roll from Billy Fury, Tommy Steele, The Shadows, Jimmy Page, to The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Paul Weller, Jeff Buckley, Adele, Keane and Ed Sheeran at one time or another all shopped, recorded, rehearsed, or wrote in the street affectionately known as the UK’s Tin Pan Alley after New York’s famous musical street.
