Gastronome-turned-preservationist Loyd Grossman will lead The Royal Parks, the agency which administers London's eight Royal Parks
By IQ on 04 Jul 2016
The Royal Parks, the body that manages British Summer Time (BST) venue Hyde Park and London’s seven other Royal Parks, has appointed a new chairman.
Food critic, TV personality, musician and conservationist Loyd Grossman CBE, who is also chairman of the Heritage Alliance and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, takes over for a four-year term today, replacing Apurv Bagri.
The Royal Parks in January granted promoter AEG Live an extension for BST to stay in Hyde Park until 2019. The park also formerly hosted Live Nation’s Hyde Park Calling (later Hard Rock Calling) festival.
Other parks administered by The Royal Parks are St James’s Park, Regent’s Park, Richmond Park, Green Park, Kensington Gardens, Greenwich Park and Bushy Park.
