As soon as we heard about the devastating news of David Bowie’s death, we knew that we had to organise a night to celebrate the genius of Brixton’s finest son.

LET'S DANCE! Celebrate the genius of DAVID BOWIE tonight

We teamed up with the Offline Club to put on a show at the Prince Albert – not far from Bowie’s birthplace – and within hours of announcing the show, it was being featured on the national press as Brixton became the focus for Bowie fans.

Across the road in Windrush Square, hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the great man’s life, while the queue to get in the Prince Albert stretched down Coldharbour Lane for over a hundred metres. Apologies to those who couldn’t get in but there was just too many people!

Such was the amount of Bowie fans on the streets that Coldharbour Lane remained closed all night.

Inside the Albert, the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful as fans joined in with uplifting singalongs to Bowie tunes.

There were several spine-tingling moments, as the Albert rang out to the sound of passionate, happy-sad singalongs of Bowie classics.

The lights came on at the end of the night and the crowd kept singing.
