Blue plaque scheme

Cambridge’s blue plaque scheme was launched in 2001 to honour the most famous people or events associated with the city.

The people and events commemorated have made a significant impact on life in the city, the country or the world. Plaques are associated with a specific building or location within the city boundary.

The Cambridge Blue Plaques website shows the plaques’ locations and has information about the people and events that are celebrated.

The scheme is run by local charity Cambridge Past, Present and Future, mostly through the efforts of volunteers. Visit their website for details of how to nominate a person or event for commemoration.

We are represented on the Cambridge Blue Plaque Committee.
