Thank you again Taking The Pixels for making this great video of the unveiling of the great art instillation and the beautiful bench.
On Tuesday 23 July 2019 His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent KG visit the borough, as part of our Alcock and Brown centenary celebrations. In June 1919 Alcock and Brown made the first-ever non-stop trans-Atlantic flight in a Vickers Vimy originally designed and built in the Vickers Factory, at Crayford. The Duke’s visit coincided with the 100-year anniversary of Alcock and Brown’s visit to Crayford on 23 July 1919. They returned to celebrate their achievement at the re-opening of The Princesses Theatre by the then Duke of York, who later became King George VI. During his visit the Duke officially unveiled a magnificent new Alcock and Brown sculpture bench in the town centre designed by artist Tony Stallard. It is the latest in a series of unique pieces of public art in the town. He also visited Hall Place & Gardens, where he planted a tree in the gardens close to where his mother, Her Royal Highness Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent CI, planted a tree in 1952.
