Blur returned to the railway museum for a comeback gig in June
The venue where indie band Blur played their very first gig more than 20 years ago is to be commemorated by the Performing Rights Society (PRS).
The East Anglian Railway Museum, just outside Colchester in Essex, will be presented with a blue plaque.
Blur launched their career in a goods shed at the museum, and went on to spearhead the Britpop movement with hits like Parklife and Country House.
The plaque will be handed over at a ceremony on 30 November.
It will be the first of many honours given by the PRS to venues at which influential bands had their debut.
PRS Chairman Ellis Rich said: "Celebrating this country's musical heritage is a great thing to do and these plaques will be springing up all over the country.
"The UK has given the world some fantastic songwriters and performers which enrich our lives and provide the music we love.
"I'm proud that their humble musical beginnings will now be marked for all to see."
A block of flats in Deptford where Dire Straits played their first concert will also be honoured.
This June, Blur returned to the railway museum to launch their comeback tour, playing a two-hour show to a crowd of just 150 people.
