This monograph started off as a review of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens Conference held in July 2008, and over the year has slowly expanded into a discussion on issues relating to the spread and management of pleasure gardens, their appeal, and their lasting legacy down to the modern day. It also attempts to integrate aspects of the black experience in Britain: Ignatius Sancho, Juba, William Wells Brown and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
