Screaming Lord Sutch Blue Plaque - Ton Up Day

Ace Cafe London is delighted to confirm that this years annual Ton Up Day, Sunday 4th November, will include the unveiling at the premises by The Heritage Foundation of a Blue Plaque in tribute to the late Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow.
 
Born, during the blitz on London, in a Hampstead hospital, Dave Sutch lived locally in Harrow and soon became a regular frequenter of the then notorious Ace Cafe, visiting on a BSA 125 and listening to the latest rock n' roll sounds on the jukebox.
 
In addition to finding success with his music and extraordinary stage shows, in the 1960's, when voters had to be over 21, he stood in parliamentary elections as a representative of the National Teenage Party and went on to found the Official Monster Raving Loony Party which he served as leader from 1983 to 1999, during which time he stood in numerous parliamentary elections.
 
As a great friend of the Ace, Dave Sutch kindly officiated at the first Ace Cafe Reunion, held at the premises in 1994, and shared with all those present on that day of how it was at the Ace that he ate his very first rubber egg!
 
Dave Sutch 10.11.40 - 16.6.99 RIP
