Since the passing of Marc Bolan there has been a massive following and convention every year in London to celebrate his poetry, music and life. The Marc Bolan anniversary week is a big week where people from all over the world come and pay their respects. With a service at the cremotorium in Golders Green, to Bolan karioke, raffles, meet ups at the shrine, bands,tribute bands and disco. Even a musical bus tour of Bolan spots is taking place this year. The tribute bands are brilliant. Google for more information.
Marc Bolan conventions are held throughout the year in many regions. The last one was in Wales and the next one is to take place is in Wigan.Then the big one at The White Swan on the 16th September in Golders Green. 2010.

Marc Bolan was killed on Queens Ride just over the hump bridge, passed Gipsy Lane which is Barnes SW13 in the borough of Richmond Upon Thames and not Putney in the borough of Wandsworth SW15. He was on his way home to East Sheen in SW14
