Pam St Clement attended Sidcup Words and Music at Holy Trinity Church
Eastenders legend Pam St Clement, who played Pat Butcher in the soap, returned to Sidcup this week to talk about her life and career.
She attended the second annual Sidcup Words and Music event at Holy Trinity Church, Lamorbey, on Tuesday (June 14), where she discussed her childhood, memories of studying in Sidcup at the world-renowned drama school, and subsequent career on stage and screen.
Mrs St Clement was interviewed by Rose Bruford College principal Professor Michael Earley, who was delighted by the return of such a high-profile former student in the college’s 65th year.
“Pam St Clement is a British TV legend,” he said. “We are so grateful to have such a luminous graduate of Rose Bruford College come back to Sidcup and talk to us about her life and career. For a second year our annual Sidcup Words and Music delighted audiences with a winning speaker.”
The interview was followed by questions from the 120-strong audience and a book signing of her best-selling autobiography The End of An Earring.
Father Philip Wells, vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Lamorbey, said: “It was a joy and privilege to welcome Pam St Clement to Holy Trinity for a fascinating evening of conversation, exploring her life and varied career.
“Our annual Sidcup Words and Music is rapidly becoming an important community arts event. We look forward to next year!”
