University of Greenwich Big Band presents

Charity Concert: Mansion Memories

Date: Due to the move from the Mansion site being delayed to August, the concert planned for Sunday 8 March has been postponed. The concert will now be part of a larger farewell event being planned at the Mansion Site. 

Full details will be announced in the next few weeks.

The Mansion site became Avery Hill Teacher Training College in 1906 after the LCC acquired Colonel North's Mansion and converted it to the College and the grounds became Avery Hill Park. The Mansion is closing in April 2020 when the University moves out and with plans to convert the Mansion site into a secondary school.

To celebrate the history of the Mansion the University Big Band is presenting this farewell concert which includes a multimedia presentation of the history of the Mansion and the college from the early days of the site, prior to Colonel North, through the years of teaching and the impact of two world wars with unique images from the college archives. Music covering that whole period, in Big Band style will be played by the University Big Band now in its 34th year at the Mansion.
