A musical and cultural landmark, The Bowie Bandstand is in danger. Made famous by David Bowie after a historic free show the late artist performed in 1969. It is said that many of Bowie's songs were imagined at this place. Fans often leave flowers and photos at the bandstand in his memory.

Many fans hoped to see the renovation in time for the late rock stars birthday with some still skeptical due to the demolition of several other cultural landmarks in Beckenham.
