Save the date – Market and Heritage Trail Launch Saturday 19 Oct 2013

The next Market On The Green is being twinned with the launch of the long awaited Beckenham Heritage Trail. The trail takes you past 23 historical points and you will be following in the footsteps of some well known names associated with Beckenham including children’s author Enid Blyton; poet and composer Carey Blyton; entertainer Bob Monkhouse; actor Julie Andrews; singer David Bowie; and former Prime Minister Sir John Major. There will be lots to see and do throughout the town centre to celebrate the launch.
