There’s emotional scenes taking place in Brixton right now with David Bowie fans gathering around the mural to drink, sing and dance.

Exactly a year ago, the music world was stunned by the news of Bowie’s death, and Brixton responded with a spontaneous party in Windrush Square and other packed events in local bars.

Currently taking place by the mural (opposite Brixton tube station) is a fantastic street party, which had been advertised on Facebook as the Bowie Fan Meet Up For the 1st Anniversary.

Cyclists from IBikeLondon who had taken part in the Bowie Bike Ride were also amongst the revellers.

There’s a sound system playing Bowie and as of 10.45pm (Tues 10th Jan), the party was in full swing.

Here’s some more photos:
