Bowie’s bandstand fundraiser in Beckenham
PUBLISHED: 07:00 08 August 2018
Bowie fans are invited to unite on Saturday August 11 to celebrate his songs, life and influence in the park where his rise to stardom began in 1969.
The third “Bowie’s Beckenham Oddity” will take place at Croydon Road Recreation Ground, and will be centred around the same iconic bandstand where Bowie, along with friends from the Beckenham Arts Lab, held the UK’s first Free Festival “The Growth Summer Festival” on August 16, nearly 49 years ago.
The festival coincided with the release of David’s first hit single Space Oddity.
This year’s event kicks off at 12 noon, with a line up of musical talent who will reprise Bowie’s greatest songs.
Food and drinks will also be available as well as a raffle of donated prizes, and an auction of Bowie related memorabilia.
Tickets cost £10 for adults, £5 for 10 to 16 year olds, and under 10s go free.
They can be brought online at http://www.wegottickets.com/sct/e3WbvapmJV or at the gate on the day of the event.
