Blue plaque honour for Covent Garden punk venue The Roxy Club

The venue which helped birth London's punk scene has been celebrated with a blue plaque.

The Roxy Club hosted some of Britain's biggest punk acts including The Clash, The Buzzcocks, and Siouxsie & The Banshees during the genre's infancy in the Seventies before closing down in 1977.

On Tuesday, a blue plaque was unveiled at the venue in Neal Street in London's Covent Garden, 40 years after it opened.

The Slits' Tessa Pollitt and model and singer Jordan Mooney attended the ceremony, alongside Roxy founders Andrew Czezowski and Susan Carrington, who recently published a book documenting the venue's history.

The plaque was installed as part of The Seven Dials Trust's ongoing People And Street History Plaques project.
