A statue of Amy Winehouse will be unveiled in Camden on 14 Sep, which would have been her 31st birthday.

Designed by Scott Eaton, the statue was originally planned to stand at the Roundhouse venue, though its location has now been moved to the nearby Stables Market to make it more accessible.

Winehouse’s father Mitch told reporters: “I had a meeting with Camden Council and they told me they don’t usually allow statues until 20 years after someone has died, but in Amy’s case they made an exception. It’s a great honour to have the statue in the Stables. Amy was an integral part of Camden and still is, so you couldn’t really think of putting a statue for her anywhere else, could you really?”

The singer (and Camden resient) died in 2011 from alcohol poisoning.
