Dora Bryan – blue plaque unveiling

Today saw the unveiling of the first curved blue plaque in the city to honour the late actress and comedienne Dora Bryan. Fellow comedian and actor (as well as President of the Max Miller Appreciation Society) Roy Hudd led proceedings with the help of fellow celebrity Michael Aspel at the former hotel owned for many years by the actress at CLARGES, 118 Marine Drive. The plaque had been arranged by the Max Miller Appreciation Society with the assistance of the city’s Blue Plaque committee and a donation from Brighton and Hove Heritage Commission. The hotel also featured in two Carry On Films. A large crowd attended and Dora’s sons were also present.
