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.
