Greenwich Music Time, the first concert event ever to be hosted at the Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) has scheduled its dates over this summer’s August Bank Holiday, 20-23 August.
Goldfrapp, in her only London date this year, joins Russell Watson and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, Melanie C and Marc Almond at the event, which will take place at the heart of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.
The stage will overlook Greenwich’s historic landscape in the middle of Sir Christopher Wren’s twin-domed riverside buildings. Around 500 people are expected to attend each night of the event.
Organised in association with the ORNC Foundation, Greenwich Music Time will also showcase Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, whose students and recent graduates will perform an opening set each night before the headlining acts.
“Greenwich Music Time will add to the unbeatable variety of great music events that London hosts throughout the year,” said mayor of London Boris Johnson. “Amidst the historic surroundings of the Old Royal Naval College, it promises to be a summertime treat and will be another reason to visit this increasingly exciting part of the capital.”
Goldfrapp added: “We can’t wait to perform. We’ll be playing a selection of old and new songs in the stunning and beautiful grounds of the Old Royal Naval College. It’s our only London show this year so we look forward to seeing [everyone] there!”
Priority booking for Greenwich Music Time runs from 26 February to 2 March, with general tickets on sale from 3 March.
