Venue of 1st Blur gig honoured

Goods shed at East Anglian Railway Museum to get blue plaque

Location: Chappel and Wakes Colne Station, Wakes Colne, Es, CO6 2DS

Description: The very spot where Blur played their very first gig is to get its own unique 'blue plaque'.

Unveiled on November 30 2009, the first plaque will be placed on the Goods Shed at the 'East Anglian Railway Museum', situated just outside Colchester, to mark the spot where Blur first played.

The 150-capacity room hosted their first ever gig back when they were called Seymour, and also welcomed them back earlier this year when they returned to play a sold-out show.

In a new scheme set up by the Performance Rights Society For Music, the plaque will be the first of many in a series which commemorates the debut gig of some of the UK's most seminal bands.
