David Bowie, Ray Davies And Jazzie B To Be Celebrated At London Conference

David Bowie, the Kinks' Ray Davies and producer Jazzie B are among a number of distinguished Londoners set to be celebrated in a series of talks entitled Some 32. The series focuses on people who have helped shaped the capital's history.

Some 32 speakers include former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, director Julien Temple, DJ Nihal, historian Dan Cruikshank and broadcaster Robert Elms.

They will tell the stories of figures from across music, sport, literature, science and popular culture, including authors Eyelyn Waugh, Zadie Smith, Alfred Hitchcock and Charlie Chaplin.

"The London Eye has become a source of great pride for London since we opened in 2000 so we wanted to host a celebration of all those characters who have added to the legacy of this magnificent city," Helen Bull, Marketing Director for the London Eye said.

Each of the talks will last 45 minutes and take place as the famous ferris wheel rotates to 135m high with views stretching across the city.
