After the passing of Sir Roger Moore on 23 May 2017 a decision was made by Pinewood Studios to honour the legendary actor and humanitarian with a new soundstage named The Roger Moore Stage.

On Saturday 14th October, it would have been Sir Roger Moore's 90th birthday, so in celebration of his life, and to honour the man who called Pinewood home for over 40 productions as well as keeping an office here since 1970, HRH The Countess of Wessex officially opened The Roger Moore Stage.

The afternoon at Pinewood saw 300 cast, crew, family and friends attend a very special private event. On-stage tributes came from Dame Joan Collins, Sir Michael Caine, Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and, on behalf of UNICEF, David Walliams.

Honorary guests included Stefanie Powers, Stephen Fry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Lord Grade of Yarmouth, Sir Tim Rice, and Bond girls Madeline Smith, Gloria Hendry and Lynn-Holly Johnson. All the guests then enjoyed a post-ceremony afternoon tea.

Lady [Kristina] Moore and the movie star's three children [Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian Moore] paid an emotional end tribute, saying just how proud Roger would be to see his name dominate the Pinewood lot.

The Roger Moore Stage is the second largest stage at Pinewood Studios, and is one of our newest stages along with Stages 1-4 and adjacent to workshops.
