Unveiling Of Amy’s Statue In Camden

Event Information | Events | News | Press

As many of you will know there have been plans for a statue of Amy to be placed in Camden for some time now.

We are pleased to announce that a beautiful life size bronze of Amy will be placed in the Stables Market in Camden on Amy’s birthday, and our third birthday, September 14th 2014.

Although the statue was originally planned for the terrace of the Roundhouse, due to Amy’s and the Foundations affinity with the iconic music venue, after careful consideration it was decided it would be placed somewhere that fans could gain year round access, and so the new location was chosen.

The specially-commissioned statue, designed and sculpted by Scott Eaton and cast in bronze will be unveiled by Amys family and friends, and will offer them and Amy’s many fans a permanent memorial in the heart of Amy’s spiritual home of Camden.

The statue is funded by the Winehouse family and Camdenmarket.com, the parent company for the Stables Market in Camden Town.

Amy’s mother Janis accompanied Mayor of Camden Jonathan Simpson to  the 40th anniversary of the Camden Branch of the MS Society, an evening reception held at the Charlie Ratchford Centre which is in Belmont Street, NW1.

Janis said: ‘We were honoured to attend the 40th Anniversary celebrations of the Camden Multiple Sclerosis Society with Jonathan. It was enlightening to see another support group in action, and the love, support and affection of the members was inspiring. They made us feel so at home and its just a shame to see how underfunded the group is as they doing such essential work’.
