Lived in London: Blue Plaques and the Stories Behind Them

TALK on Thursday 21 October 2010, 7pm

Come and hear about the people and buildings that have been honoured with blue plaques in Hackney and elsewhere in London. This illustrated talk will explore how the blue plaques scheme has evolved over the last 140 years and tell the stories of some of the famous figures to have been commemorated. Find out how to make a plaque proposal and discover why not all plaques are blue.
