News in from Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust about upcoming events at Charlton House & Gardens:

Charlton House’s Friday Concert Programme, which takes place every Friday from 1pm to 2pm and free for all to attend, welcomes the Royal Academy and Royal College of Music students back to the Old Library, with recitals from the Brompton String Quartet and Academy Harp Department in June.

July sees the return of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Royal Greenwich Brass Brand, a firm favourite for audiences young and old.

There are also a number of special events taking place in July, with an open-air performance in association with Drama Impact of the Shakespeare classic comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ on the 14th July, 2pm and 7pm. Tickets are available at £15.00 per head from the dramaimpact.com website.

More open-air events are planned in July with two very special outdoor screenings in association with the Extraordinary Travelling Film show.

Watch the Oscar winning Bohemian Rhapsody on the big screen under the stars on Friday 19th July at 7.30pm, within the impressive grounds and gardens of Charlton House. A big night is expected so come along and make some noise to the classic hits of Queen.

Hidden Figures screens on the evening of Saturday 20th July, part of a series of events in association with the Moon Festival celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the moon landings, this heart-warming crowd pleaser film celebrates the crucial and often overlooked contribution of a group of women to space history, to critical acclaim and with a stellar cast.

Early bird tickets for both screenings are available until the 16th June after which they will go on general sale. Early bird prices are £9 for adults, £6 for children (3-12) and you can purchase a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) for £35.
