“On Saturday, January 8 across two floors The Piper will celebrate the Starman’s music, life, legacy and death with a stellar line-up of DJs, projections, videos and very special guests. Last time we hosted the event, it was an emotional rock n’ roll roadblock, so please be sure to arrive early!

“This year we are truly, truly honoured to welcome one of his axemen Kevin Armstrong who wrote and performed with David over an incredible ten-year period from 1984-94.

“Kevin will be kindly hosting a very intimate evening upstairs @ The Living Room, where he will be sharing his memories and good times with us whilst playing some songs and sharing some rare pictures and footage for us mere mortals to watch and enjoy in awe!

“Tickets to this special event are strictly limited to just 80 and are just £8 in advance for early birds. Doors: 7-9pm. Entry to the broader event is free but it’s advisable to pick up passes in advance to guarantee entry. Celebrations commence for this from 8pm to late. Please come dressed in suitable Bowie attire and enjoy a complimentary glass of stardust as we pay our respects to The Thin White Duke!”
