Beckenham’s starman David Bowie will be appearing on cinema screens in August as his exhibit at the V&A Museum draws to a close.

More than 200 cinemas across the UK will see curators and special guests introduce parts of the exhibition on August 13.

More than 200,000 people have visited David Bowie Is since it opened in March, with 67,000 tickets sold-up front - a V&A record for the most advanced tickets sold for an exhibition ever.

The event is being directed by Hamis Hamilton, who received a special Bafta award for his work on the Olympic and Paralympic ceremony coverage.

V&A director, Martin Roth, said: “Visitors have gone to great lengths for a chance to see our exhibition so we wanted to give everyone across the country one last opportunity to experience it for themselves.

“This is the first time the V&A has taken part in a live broadcast event of this magnitude and we are extremely excited to be working with such a talented production team to present the phenomenon that is David Bowie to the widest possible audience.”

The exhibition moves on to Toronto, Canada, and Sao Paolo, Brazil, in the coming months.
