Remembering Kenny Everett
by Mary Payne

On Saturday September 14th, the British Comedy Society, Transworld Books and the Terence Higgins Trust co-hosted a day-long event celebrating the life and career of Kenny Everett. A blue plaque was unveiled outside his last home, 91 Lexham Gardens, Kensington, followed by the launch of his much-anticipated authorised biography, 'Hello Darlings' at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.

This is a four-page photo report of a very special occasion by Mary Payne pictured (left) by Jon Myer, with Kenny's Blue Plaque.
