A slice of Hollywood is coming to London... kind of! This month sees the unveiling of the first plaque on The Music Walk of Fame, a new area designed to imitate Hollywood Boulevard, the famous LA street filled with handprints and stars representing A-list icons.
London’s series of plaques will be in Camden Town, an area that has a rich musical history and attracts more than 26 million visitors a year.
Some of the biggest names in music will be celebrated with a flagstone. We don’t know who the walk will pay homage to first, but we do know that the initial plaque will be unveiled on November 19.
Justine Simons, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, commented on Camden's ‘legendary venues’ saying it was the ideal location for this.
It’s a sizeable project with organisers hoping to put down hundreds of flagstones over the next 20 years – the walk will eventually run the whole length of Camden High Street. Each plaque will be laid with live performances and celebrations.
