The recent unexpected death of David Bowie sent a wave of sadness but warm reflection of how much impact his work had on British culture and art across the world.
David Bowie was an artist and he used many art forms to display his work. Primarily this was through his music but he also had a successful, and respected, career as an actor.
To celebrate Bowies legacy and help raise funds and awareness for charity, The Quarry Theatre at St. Lukes has partnered with Bedford Film Festival and Esquires to host a number of events that will help people remember the way that Bowie inspired them, while also allowing some to experience some of his work that they may not have done so before.
Part of this event will be a family friendly screening of Labyrinth. A film that brought Bowie into the general film consciousness. Helping him cross over from what many thought were more experimental films to the mainstream, while still retaining the Bowie style that made him so unique.
Many parents will have enjoyed watching Labyrinth as a child. In fact watching this film may well be many peoples first experience of Bowie, as a musician and an actor and no doubt many then went on to explore his other work, or even develop a greater affection towards him.
Were delighted to be presenting this family friendly screening of Labyrinth to celebrate Bowies legacy and all profits from the event will go to Bedford Day Care Hospice who provide individualised holistic care to patients suffering with a life limiting condition from the point of diagnosis through treatment to remission or palliative care.
