Running in association with the ORNC Foundation, Greenwich Music Time will present four nights of world-class concerts featuring visionary electropop outfit Goldfrapp, who will perform songs from their back catalogue, as well as from 2013’s acclaimed Tales Of Us. A major coup for the festival, this will be the duo’s only London show of 2014.
Multi-million-selling English tenor Russell Watson will headline on Friday, August 22, backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and featuring some very special guests, and drawing the festival to a close on Saturday, August 23 is local boy Jools Holland, who brings his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra to Greenwich for a set that will feature special guest singers Marc Almond and Melanie C.
Greenwich Music Time’s stage will be situated in the heart of Sir Christopher Wren’s iconic twin-domed riverside masterpiece, providing 5,000 revellers a night with the opportunity to experience Greenwich’s unique historic landscape from an incredible perspective.
With over 1.7 million annual visits, the ORNC is one of the most visited attractions in the UK and has provided the backdrop for countless movies including recent blockbusters Les Misérables, Skyfall and The King’s Speech. The concert series will also showcase Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, with its students and recent graduates performing an opening set each night before the headline show.
