FitzFest 2016
Celebrating London’s Fitzrovia with its entire musical heritage from past generations together with the contemporary diversity that thrives today.

The Bolívar Hall is part of Francisco de Miranda House which is situatued in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia. It is an important place for Latin Americans as it was at this address that the construction of the dream of a free and united Latin America was thought out, planned and worked for.
Francisco de Miranda, Simón Bolívar, Andrés Bello and Luis López Méndez, four of the most important Venezuelans of all time met not in Caracas where they were from but at this site in Warren Street in 1810.
The house was also the base for the printing of the first newspaper of the Americas, El Colombiano.
At the time, 58 Grafton Way had a library on the third floor containing approximately 6,000 volumes. Important meetings where political ideas were discussed and where the concept of solidarity between Latin American nations flourished.It was also the home of the first diplomatic representation of Latin America in Europe, Leander Miranda, Francisco de Miranda’s eldest son, was the first representative of the new Republic of Venezuela in 1830. He was also reponsible for anouncing the death of the Liberator, Simon Bolivar to the British Government.
