A Marchmont Association blue plaque commemorating Charlotte Mew, Poet, was unveiled on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at 30 Doughty Street, WC1, where Mew was born and lived from 1865 to 1890. The event was attended by numerous Mew 'followers' and distinguished representatives of the literary world.

The plaque was unveiled by Mew's current biographer, Julia Copus, ably assisted by Mew's surviving relative, 84 year old Heather Greetham (see picture). Heather's great-grandmother was Fanny Mew, Charlotte's aunt on her father's side. Julia gave the assembled gathering some interesting facts about Mew's time at No. 30, whilst reminding us why she is a deserving recipient of the plaque. Michele Roberts, Professor Emeritus, UEA, recited a poem by Mew, which showed how far ahead of her time she was in her thinking.

The Marchmont Association is particularly grateful to three generous donors who helped fund this plaque, and to Goodenough College for graciously hosting the post-unveiling reception in their elegant building, which stands directly opposite No. 30.
