Wow - thanks peeps! Keep 'em coming - or alternatively people who were born in the area but don't necessarily live here now ...

I know of celebs down the hill in Penge:
Big Daddy used to lodge in my street, but he's dead.
as is Enid Blyton who's from Penge. Bill Wyman and Bowie are from Penge too and their still alive, just about.

When's the Gipsy Hill Tavern comedy night then?

Comedy night is on Fridays, but think it has finished for the Summer and will be back on again in Autumn. It starts around 9pm and is £2. Look outside the pub at the blackboard for details.

Linda Barker lives in either Sydenham or Dulwich. Her daughter goes to my daughters old school - Sydenham High school.

I have it on good authority that Tom and Nicole did live in one of the grand houses in Dulwich Village - but I think that it was sold in the divorce settlement! Some friends saw Tom out and about with a pack of body guards!

Superstar DJ huh? Ah well, not sure I'd be trendy enough to talk to her ... ;)

A friend is gathering all the agents' addresses of the people mentioned on here, so I can send off a bunch of letters at the same time. Update soon hopefully!

I have also spotted James Nesbit in Dulwich Village, and Jo Brand in Dulwich Park. I don't think Rolf Harris lives round here, I heard he has a place in Bucks near the river. Of course Bill Wyman came from Penge originally, but I don't think he lives there any more!
