INSIDE 2-day Jimmy Jools to play Mizen Hope event at ORNC concerts GET ready for a summer of live music here – at


THREE big events in Greenwich and Blackheath. A two-day Festival of Good Hope on the Heath in memory of murdered Lee schoolboy Jimmy Mizen has been given the go-ahead for the weekend of August 2 and 3. Organisers The Jimmy Mizen Foundation promise


“A beautiful and peaceful music and arts festival.” Later that month the new Greenwich Music Time event will hold four nights of gigs at the Old Royal Naval College, including local legend Jools Holland (right). And OnBlackheath has permission to hold a two-day rock and pop festival on the Heath on the weekend of September 13 and 14. It was first planned in 2011 but delayed


OnBlackheath set for September


by legal action taken by The Blackheath Society. But Chairman Howard Shields told The Greenwich Visitor that, although The Society backed just one event – the Festival of Good Hope – “Lewisham Council have given outline approval to both, with conditions. We will work hard with Lewisham and organisers to ensure that, if they go ahead, risks to the Heath and inconvenience to residents are minimised, with a full review afterwards.” Some claim closing the Heath is illegal. Campaigner Rachel Mawhood says: “Blackheath is already a fantastic, free-to-use multi-community amenity and must be protected from – in this instance, unlawful – exploitation by commercial interests.” College of Music – Page 3
