#plaque366 Mike Leigh & Alison Steadman

THIS WEEK: OSCAR SPECIAL! With the famous award ceremony taking place this Sunday 28th February, we present, for your consideration, seven plaques dedicated to Academy Award Winners and Nominees.

This plaque – a fairly rare example in that it is dedicated to two people BOTH of whom are still alive – can be found in Cranleigh Street, Somers Town…

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
