Bowie: In Memoriam at the Prince of Wales
To launch their charity of the year, the Prince of Wales will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support over the next 12 months, the funky denizens of Moseley’s finest drinking den have laid on an evening celebrating the musical genius of David Bowie. DJ Dylan has got the music sorted as we take a trip through one of the most inventive and rich musical back catalogues ever created. From Aladdin Sane to Ziggy Stardust.

The Catastrophe Club Bowie Night at Kitchen Garden Cafe
Fresh from the glorious return of the Catastrophe Club last year Micky Greaney returns to host another event, this time in honour of what would have been the great David Bowie’s 70th birthday. A fantastic lineup once again from the Catastrophe Club with some real big hitters of the local music scene. World Party’s ex Duran Duran legend Andy Wickett will be performing along with The Major Toms and several others, but we’re particularly excited to see what The Enigma String Quartet bring to a Bowie tribute.
