  • Simon Parkes, Former Brixton Academy owner - Simon paid £1 for a crumbling building in Brixton in 1983 at the age of 23. He renamed it the Brixton Academy and transformed it into a popular music venue that would go on to host iconic superstars, including David Bowie.

  • Charlie Waterhouse, The Brixton Pound - Designer of the Brixton £10 note, which features Brian Duffy's iconic photography of David Bowie and is used as legal currency in Brixton.

  • Michael Jackson, LegoDavidBowieIs - Michael leads a community of Bowie fans on Instagram, with a following of over 20,000 fans. He organises events across London to honour the Thin White Duke.

  • Wendy Faulkner, Bowie's Beckenham Oddity - Wendy is the organiser of Bowie’s Beckenham Oddity, a festival that takes place at the bandstand in Beckenham, where Bowie and his friends from the Beckenham Arts Lab organised The UK’s first Free Festival. The festival coincided with the release of David’s first hit single Space Oddity and was immortalised with another hit song, Memory of a Free Festival. To date, the event has raised thousands of pounds for the Bowie Bandstand Restoration & Plaque Fund.
