Royal Arsenal Farmers' Market

On the SECOND & LAST Saturdays of every Month a Farmers’ market is held from 10am – 3pm in Royal Arsenal throughout the year.

The market is held inside a space called BUILDING 10, a large concerted military canon carriage factory. It is a popular market with several hundred people attending every time and has great acoustics for a live performance!

As with the past year, we are looking mainly for solo / duo music performers to attend the market and perform live. It was a great success in 2016 so would like to continue into 2017.

The performers are asked to play for 1 hour total, 11:30am – 12:00pm, then 1:00pm to 1:30pm with lunch provided in between.  We are particularly looking for LOCAL musicians.

There is access to a small PA with mic, however we do prefer acoustic performances as much as possible.

There is a small fee offered to performers as well as a tasty meal from the market! We do also permit performers to sell CDs.

If you are interested please contact Peggy on:   Rare.Information@berkeleygroup.co.uk

Address:  Building 10, Major Draper Street, Royal Arsenal, Greenwich, London SE19 6GD
