Bromley Technical School will be holding a special tribute concert to celebrate musical legend David Bowie.

The school, now called Ravens Wood School, will host the concert on August 27 (bank holiday Monday).

Headlining the event will be The Thin White Duke, the respected and long-running six-piece Bowie tribute act, and supporting will be Adam Crawford, bringing his 12 string guitar and love of Bowie’s music to his former school.

Also appearing and giving a brief talk will be acclaimed painter, visual collaborator and lifelong friend of David Bowie, George Underwood.

There will also be Bowie art by Sara Captain, whose Bowie murals can be viewed at Zizzi Beckenham and Maria Primolan, the award winning architect and sculptor.

Also at the event, which will take place from 3pm to around 6.30pm, will be Bowie-related stalls and food and drink vendors.

Tickets are £15 and £8 for under 10s (plus booking fee).

In tribute to David Bowie’s father, ‘John’ Haywood Stenton Jones, £1 from every ticket sold will go to Barnardo’s
