King’s Heath Floral Trail: Toyah To Be First Star…

July 10th, 2012

…on King’s Heath’s Walk of Fame

Singer and actress Toyah Willcox is to be honoured as the first star on King’s Heath’s very own Walk of Fame on York Road on Monday 16 July at 11.30 a.m. Interviewed recently on Radio WM, Toyah said “My DNA is firmly rooted in King’s Heath. Not only was I born on Grove Road, my grandfather, a construction developer, built most of the buildings there. And then my father took over the business that was then known as Willcox-Lang”. Later in the evening Toyah will play a special intimate homecoming show at the Hare & Hounds with tickets priced £15 available at www.hareandhoundskingsheath.co.uk

Toyah’s induction is the latest stage in an ambitious plan to create a Walk of Fame to rival that of Hollywood. Starting last month with the unveiling of the first Musical Heritage Plate to  commemorate the Ritz Ballroom, it has continued with the erection of a specially commissioned Guitar and Microphone Floral Display as part of Kings Heath’s 2012 Britain in Bloom entry. And now Toyah is to be honoured in the first pavement plaque.
