Beckenham's David Bowie walking tour is running a free prize draw to win an overnight stay in a 1970s/80s Ziggy Stardust themed room.

In Ziggy’s Footsteps, which has just turned three, is run by Bowie enthusiast and long-time Beckenham resident, Kat Webb.

Bowie moved to Beckenham in 1969 when he was a struggling musician, leaving four years later as an international superstar.

“It’s been a dream of mine to do this tour for over 15 years,” said 54-year-old Kat. “I love showing people around my hometown and telling them all about all the amazing stories where Bowie lived.”

The Bowie Room at Twentieth Century B&B

The guided walk visits the main locations where Bowie and the Spiders lived, performed, and spent their day to day lives.

Stops along the walk include Haddon Hall where David Bowie dreamed up his famous Ziggy Stardust persona, visits the site of the famous Beckenham Arts Lab at the Three Tuns, and ends at the Grade II listed Bowie Bandstand in Croydon Recreation Ground, where Bowie put on a free festival in the summer of 1969.

Ticket holders will be entered into a free prize draw to win an overnight stay in the David Bowie themed room at the newly opened Twentieth Century Art Deco B&B in Birchington-On-Sea, Kent.

The Bowie room is decorated with artwork from Bowie’s early career, along with a 1970’s space-age plastic modular double bed, transporting you to the Ziggy Stardust era when he performed in nearby Margate.
