Celebrate Bowie In London For Free On Saturday

We played Our songs and felt the London sky... It was ragged and naive...

As recommended by Time Out London, Saturday afternoon in London sees the third annual free David Bowie walk in the afternoon and later that same evening Bowie Night at Feeling Gloomy.

Pictured above are Darryl Croft and Andy Warhol about to lead the crowd in to another Bowie tune outside Bowie's childhood home in Stansfield Road, Brixton at last year's event.

You can view some of the sing-a-longs from last year here.

There are also pictures from the same event here.

Here's the official blurb...

David Bowie Walk Plus Bowie Night At Feeling Gloomy - Saturday 6th August

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah , nah , nah, nahhhh. For those of you with a less than musical ear that was the start of Ziggy Stardust. And the reason for this breaking out of X-Factor levels of singing? Why it’s only the return of the famous Feeling Gloomy Bowie Odyssey!

Join us first off as we set off on a FREE walking tour, taking in some of the sites of Bowie’s early life and finest hours. The tour will take in the house where the Starman was born, the site of the Marquee Club scene of a few of his finest gigs and lots of other interesting spots.

Not only will you learn some fascinating facts about Davie Jones but there will also be an honest-to-goodness Bowie impersonator there singing out some of his greatest hits!

If your poor tootsies aren’t tired enough after that then you can head down to Feeling Gloomy for Bowie night. Let’s dance to some of his greatest tunes, in amongst the normal Gloom, and put on your red shoes to dance the blues as that Bowie impersonator pops up again to serenade you. (Last time ended with a teary and beery Space Oddity).

There will be a prize for the best dressed Bowie. We will more than likely be showing Labyrinth on the screens and we’ll all have a jolly time going home singing the Laughing Gnome.

Feeling Gloomy - David Bowie Walk and Bowie Night
Walk Starts 4:00pm
Trinity Arms, 45 Trinity Gardens, SW9 8DR
FREE
Bookings: 07835 269 366

Press enquiries: 07930 414 626

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spaces for the guided Bowie walk, though free, are very limited and almost all gone.

And I'm certainly not suggesting you just turn up at the meeting point at 4:00pm and just tag along anyway...that would be a bit naughty, bordering on total anarchy.

There are still tickets for the evening's Bowie bash in Islington where there will be a prize for the best dressed Bowie, Bowie tunes played both live and from disc and a screening of Labyrinth somehow.

We'll be following up with pictures from both events as soon as we have them.
