Two new commemorative plaques

A Marchmont Association plaque commemorating George Orwell and Sir Stephen Spender, who both worked on Cyril Connolly's Horizon Magazine in the 1940s, was unveiled on Wednesday 22nd April at 2 Lansdowne Terrace, where the magazine was produced. The plaque was unveiled by Orwell's adopted son, Richard Blair, and Spender's son, Matthew Spender, in the presence of the Mayor of Camden, Cllr Lazzaro Pietragnoli and various surviving relatives of the plaque subjects. Pictured, from left to right: Richard Blair, Cressida Connolly (Cyril Connolly's daughter), the Mayor, Lizzie Spender (Stephen's daughter), Matthew Spender and Saskia Reeve (Stephen's granddaughter). We are grateful to the University of London for sponsoring this plaque and for hosting the excellent reception for our guests. [more]
