David Bowie bandstand restoration to be discussed at Friends of Croydon Road Recreation Ground meeting
RESTORING the bandstand in Beckenham where David Bowie held a festival in 1969 will be the main topic of discussion at a public meeting next week.
The late Victorian structure in Croydon Road Recreation Ground requires conservation works to ensure it continues to be an important part of Beckenham’s cultural heritage.
A tribute event held in September, which was dedicated to the musical star and the Beckenham Arts Laboratory he co-founded, helped to raise more than £7,000 towards the works.
And the Friends of Croydon Road Recreation Ground will be discussing how to push forward with the restoration plan at their meeting at Azelia Hall, Croydon Road, Beckenham, next Wednesday (November 13).
Friends group chairman Chris Phillips said: “The response to our bandstand appeal has been fantastic but there is much work to be done and we want to see this through to completion.
“We welcome ideas to secure the future of the bandstand and improve other aspects of the Recreation Ground including a new paddling pool.
“Residents are welcome to listen and participate, and if they would like to join our group, that would be fantastic.”
The meeting starts at 8pm and more details are available at the friends group’s website.
