Carey Blyton 70th Birthday Party

BHG  Carey Blyton 70th Birthday Party in Beckenham

Carey had a very high opinion of David Bowie. I sent him the video made by EditPoint about celebrations marking the unveiling of the David Bowie Plaque in Beckenham High Street in December 2001.

Early in 2002, Carey asked me if I could arrange for EditPoint to film the Civic Event to mark his 70th Birthday event I was organising in Beckenham Library on Thursday March 14th  –  the exact date of Carey’s Birthday. Carey’s health problems prevented him from attending the event personally, and he died just four months later. Nevertheless, the presentation was recorded, and Carey took great pleasure in watching the video afterwards.

Brett’s film, narrated in This Is Your Life style by Cliff’s fellow BPS member Richard Challen,can be seen on the Carey Blyton Society website:
