A life-sized bronze statue in memory of Irish comedian Spike Milligan was unveiled in north London on Thursday 4th September 2014.

The memorial was organised and fundraised for by local amenity group, The Finchley Society, of which Milligan was president and patron. Milligan lived in Woodside Park, Finchley for almost two decades from 1955 to 1974. Milligan created many episodes of some of his most famous works, BBC radio comedy programme ‘The Goon Show’ during this period as well as his television comedy sketch series ‘Q..’.

The statue shows him sitting on a bench and turning as if to speak to a person on the seat with him, according to organisers.
