The Bowie Bandstand Restoration underway at last

As many of you will know, our chair is a bit of a bandstand obsessive, so no apologies for sharing this story. The bandstand in Croydon Road Recreation Ground was made famous for David Bowie who performed here in 1969 as part of a free festival. It has been in very poor condition for many years and was eventually listed and awarded funding to see it restored. More information on the story here.

Great news if you love bandstands and Bowie
