Well, 7th April was ‘Mary Millington Day’ in London, when we unveiled a plaque commemorating Come Play with Me and premièred my new film on her incredible life, Respectable – The Mary Millington Story, at the beautiful Regent Street Cinema. From beginning to end it was an amazing event, full of laughter, stories and a few tears. Thanks to all my wonderful friends for their continuing support, and to Mary’s family for making it a day never to be forgotten. Here’s a photo of myself with some Come Play with Me alumni – my friends Nicola Austine, Sue Longhurt, Willy Roe and David Sullivan – outside the old Moulin cinema in Great Windmill Street, W1.
I, personally, have so many people to thank for a perfect day – Novus Leisure, Soho Estates, Westminster City Council, Regent Street Cinema, Content Media, London Live, Ugly Models, Alexandra Collins Photography plus David Sullivan, the Quilters, the Maxteds, my Respectable cast and crew and very special guests (aside from those pictured above) – including Clyda Rosen, Flanagan, Jess Conrad, Ed Tudor-Pole, Linzi Drew, Allan Warren, Dave Cash, Françoise Pascal, Michael Armstrong, David McGillivray, Kim Newman and Josie Harrison Marks, plus many, many more.
Thank you all for helping me celebrate the life and legacy of Mary Millington. I was extremely proud and it was, genuinely, the very best day of my life.
