Howard Spencer, a senior historian with English Heritage, leads a perambulation around the plaques – blue and otherwise – and discusses the people and places so marked, as well as the how, why and when they came to be commemorated. Among the plaques featured will be those put up by the London-wide councils, English Heritage, and the Bedford Estate. The session will also include critical discussion of the politics of plaques and memorialisation.

All welcome - This event is free, but booking is required.
