Sam Wanamaker’s plaque unveiled

The blue plaque commemorating Sam Wanamaker's vision for the Globe Theatre was unveiled on Friday morning by Zoe Wanamaker, and Sam's brother Will who had flown in for the weekend of activities to celebrate Sam's birthday.



Deputy Mayor Denise Capstick reiterated Southwark's commitment to its heritage and tourism. Certainly there was a wonderful buzz of activity with many school groups and Globe volunteers gathered for the occasion.

Dr Wanamaker later took a bunch of sweet williams and love-in-a-mist to Southwark Cathedral where they have been placed by the memorials to Edmund Shakespeare and Sam himself.
