WHAT'S ON

The Australian Pink Floyd Show complete the line-up for the first Greenwich Music Time festival this summer.

The four-day showcase of sound will also see Goldfrapp, Russell Watson and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, take to the stage at the Old Royal Naval College.

Fresh from a sold-out UK tour and a gig across the river at The O2, the tribute show for England's iconic rock band will open proceedings on Wednesday, August 20.

Their live show, which is inspired heavily by Floyd's albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Division Bell, is one of the most in-demand on the circuit, receiving critical acclaim.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson: "Greenwich Music Time will add to the unbeatable variety of great music events that London hosts throughout the year. 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."

Ticket sales for Greenwich residents open this Wednesday, and are on general sale on Friday.

Tickets for all other shows, which span the August Bank Holiday from August 20 to 23, are now available.
