West End’s Criterion renames bar in honour of Richard Attenborough
London’s Criterion Theatre has renamed its bar in honour of the venue’s former chairman, Richard Attenborough.
The Lord Attenborough Bar was unveiled on September 28 to a group of invited guests, who included Stephen Fry and Michael Attenborough, Richard’s son.
Criterion Theatre owner Sally Green said: “I’m so proud and privileged to be able to rename the Criterion’s bar in Richard’s honour. Hopefully this will help to keep his memory alive for future generations. He did a great deal of work for the theatre and on a personal level has very much been an inspiration throughout my career.”
Attenborough died in August last year.
