Plaque-Life: Damon Albarn gets a blue plaque in Leytonstone

Posted at 5:30 pm, November 8, 2014 in News

It’s all well and good giving blue plaques to political visionaries from the seventeenth century, or literary giants from the nineteenth, but what about the great Londoners of today? Must we really wait half a century before we finally give a blue plaque to the likes of Damon Albarn? The answer, thankfully, is no, because Waltham Forest Council have put a plaque on the Blur singer’s childhood home in Leytonstone. The cockney crooner was on hand to unveil the plaque, and said something about living in a house, a very big house in the country, but Leytonstone would always mean home. Probably.

Here’s ten Londoners other who deserve a blue plaque.
