Just weeks after the news that Bermondsey-born Tommy Steele is to be knighted, his 1957 autobiographical musical film The Tommy Steele Story is being released on Blu-ray and DVD this week.

Sir Tommy is patron of the Rotherhithe & Bermondsey Local History Society and the local group wrote to congratulate him when his knighthood was announced in the recent Queen’s Birthday Honours.

A blue plaque honoring Sir Tommy’s Bermondsey roots can be seen at Nickleby House in George Row on the Dickens Estate.
