The legendary Barbra Streisand does not believe “Enough is Enough” and will not permit anybody to “Rain on my Parade” – as she returns to London after her concert at the O Arena in 2013. At age 77, the mega star will perform in Hyde Park in London. An event not to be missed by fans who have followed La Streisand for 50 years or more. If you wish to meet Roald, Trond and Desderi Travel Club friends, spend the weekend in London from July 6th to 9th.
To prepare for this weekend in London, and to secure yourself tickets for this concert that is supposed to be booked to capacity as soon as the tickets are launched – you proceed as follows (for this arrangement, Desderi Travel Club is not an organizer as such, we merely inform how to proceed):

There is not only a matter of seats and how close to the stage and Barbra you will be, but all special features. So do study what each ticket category indeed does include.
DTC’s preferred hotel:
Roald and Trond were invited to a Christmas concert at London’s Tower Bridge in November 2018, and stayed at the Mayfair Hotel – simply called “the Mayfair” and only steps from Hyde Park. Could not be more ideal for this special occasion…

July 6, Saturday
Check into your hotel of choice – London has a variety of all classes and price levels. If you want to meet Roald and Trond, then check into the Mayfair where they will be staying. Trond actually spent his early adulthood as a guide in London. Even though the city has changed dramatically since 1975 when he worked there – actually 44 years ago – Trond still knows London better than most. He can even take you to the Leicester Square Movie Theatre where he got a glimpse of Barbra and Queen Elizabeth while waiting in line outside for the premiere of Funny Lady. This movie clip embraces the atmosphere of the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5lHn6d8KcI
A very young Streisand and a diamond covered Queen in her late forties.
This evening we have made a reservation at the renown restaurant at the top of the Royal Garden Hotel with wonderful vistas of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park – where we will be “in concert” the next day. The “Min Jiang” offers the finest Chinese cuisine and is considered London’s most authentic Chinese restaurant. It is located on the tenth floor with breathtaking views of Hyde Park and the London Skyline and is the perfect accompaniment for our delicious dinner.
July 7, Sunday July 7th
After breakfast we sojourn in the lobby for a walk in Hyde Park. Here we will see the venue where the concert will take place this evening. We stroll from Hyde Park, via Buckingham Palace into St. James’s Park, along the Mall into the Strand. Here we have lunch at the Simpson’s on the Strand – maybe the most English of all typical restaurants in London. In the early evening, we get ready for the concert with the legendary singer, actress and diva; Ms. Barbra Streisand. (Program and times to be published).
After the performance, we walk back to the Mayfair – and enjoy a light snack at Langan’s Brasserie, adjacent to the hotel.
July 8, Monday
The wonderful weekend is over – enjoy more of London or explore England.
