Plaque unveiling at Langham Hotel, London

On March 19th at 11.30am a plaque is to be unveiled at the Langham Hotel in London. This plaque marks the day in 1889 when Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde first met at a dinner arranged by the American publisher J.M. Stoddart.

This dinner resulted in Stoddart commissioning a story from both men. From Conan Doyle he commissioned Sherlock Holmes's second adventure The Sign of Four and from Oscar Wilde he commissioned The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Anyone can attend the unveiling but the reception afterwards is invitation only.
