Agatha Christie Memorial
Yesterday Westminster Council granted planning permission for an Agatha Christie Memorial to be erected in Covent Garden. The crime writer's play The Mousetrap has been running in London's theatreland since 1952, the world's longest-running stage production. There will be a gala performance on 25 November, the play's 60th birthday. The 8-feet-tall bronze memorial, with the author's profile by sculptor Ben Twiston-Davies, will be in place by the end of 2012 (CLICK).
