A special fundraising event for children with cancer in Northern Ireland is to celebrate the legacy of David Bowie tonight.

DJ Joe Lindsay will play hits and some remixes and more obscure works from the artist's back catalogue.

Bowie died of cancer last month, aged 69.

A screening of Nicolas Roeg's science fiction drama The Man Who Fell To Earth, which Bowie starred in, is also planned at the Limelight in Belfast.

Joe said: "David Bowie is not just a loss to the world of music, he was much more than that, he defined a generation and an era. More than once.

"His impact was felt in music, film, theatre, art and popular culture generally."
