Plaque: Eric Sykes

Erection date: 7/7/2013

Inscription

Eric Sykes, CBE, 1923 - 2012, writer, actor and director, worked here.
The Heritage Foundation

Sykes' family unveiled this plaque just 3 days after the first anniversary of his death. A plaque for Spike Milligan (unveiled by Sykes) was already in situ here. For visibility it would have been better had Eric's plaque been positioned above Spike's rather than below.

Site: Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes (2 memorials)

W2, Orme Court, 9

The two men shared an office at this address for more than 50 years.  They were members of Associated London Scripts, a comedy writers’ co-operative.  Other members were Frankie Howerd and Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.  We note that Milligan's plaque says he 'lived' here, whereas Sykes' says 'worked'.
