Plaque to celebrate Dartford meeting of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
A PLAQUE will be installed to commemorate Mick Jagger’s fateful meeting with Keith Richards at Dartford train station, it was revealed today (Dec 9).
Council leader Jeremy Kite announced the proposal which will take place next year to celebrate Dartford’s cultural heritage.
The plaque will be put up near the platform at the station where the musical pair first spotted each other with guitars in 1961.
Councillor Kite has also revealed he is hoping a Rolling Stones museum or exhibition could come to the town.
He said: "We have wanted to put up the plaque for some time but it seems sensible to wait until the new railway station was up and running."
"Dartford really does have a rich, hidden history. We're a town that changed the world in terms of great inventors, pioneers, and, of course, great musicians.
!If a town's going to have a local band it might as well be the most successful one on the planet.
"It's a great story and I'd love to see a permanent exhibition to compliment our traditional heritage."
