The Bowie plaque in Beckenham

A plaque on the wall of Zizzi’s restaurant on Beckenham High Street honours pop legend David Bowie. The side of the restaurant, formerly the Three Tuns pub where Bowie started a creative arts scene, became known as the Beckenham Arts Lab in 1969. The plaque was first erected by Bowie-enthusiast Cliff Walker, but was removed two years later when the pub, then called the Rat and Parrot, was sold and the building was left derelict. It was reinstated in 2010.
