On Wednesday, August 9, Leader of the Council Jeremy Kite MBE joined sculptor Amy Goodman and Keith Richards’ family to unveil The Glimmer Twins to guests and the public at One Bell Corner.

The work depicting Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards mid-performance was paid for through a public art contribution by Bellway London’s Copperhouse Green development on Lowfield Street.

Together the frontman and guitarist of The Rolling Stones went on to take the world by storm after reuniting at Dartford Railway Station in 1961. They have had number one albums in every single decade since, featuring huge hits including Satisfaction, Gimme Shelter, Sympathy for the Devil and Paint it Black.

Dartford Borough Council commissioned statues of The Rolling Stones legends in 2022 and sculptor Amy Goodman has immortalised them in her work, The Glimmer Twins.
