Dundee street to be named after comic book characters, The Bash Street Kids

AN application to have a street in Dundee named after famous characters in The Beano comic – published locally – has been approved.

In a statement released by publishers, DC Thomson, Dundee City Council’s city development committee  agreed to a request to call an unnamed street in Dundee’s west end, ‘Bash Street’ – after The Bash Street Kids.

The application was lodged last month.

Says a DC Thomson statement: “Bash Street, along with a Beano-themed activity centre, is part of the Dundee-based publisher’s plan to celebrate The Beano’s 75th anniversary next year.”
