9 DEC 2023 – 4 FEB 2024

This winter, Coalescence is making its London debut at the Old Royal Naval College. The thought-provoking sculptural art installation from the internationally acclaimed designer Paul Cocksedge, invites visitors to reflect on the environment, energy, power, time and history.

Made from over 2,500 pieces of coal – the amount consumed by a single 200W light bulb in a year – Coalescence will be suspended against the grand arch of the Painted Hall, where it will create an intricate play of shadow and sparkle that draws on the lustrous quality of the anthracite, a form of high-carbon coal.

NOV 2023 – APR 2024

Uncover the fascinating world of the historic Greenwich Chocolate House during the early 1700s, where culture, science, and indulgence converged to create a golden age of intellectual enlightenment.

In this exhibition, you’ll step into a captivating journey that brings to life the architects, astronomers, and chocolatiers who shaped this historic area into a hub of brilliance and innovation.

Ignite your senses with the opportunity to try the drinking chocolate favoured by George I, leading to Thomas Tosier becoming chocolatier to the King.


11 & 19 DEC – 2PM

Don’t miss the chance to see one of London’s most outstanding music ensembles in this festive carol concert set against the stunning backdrop of the Chapel of St Peter & St Paul, regarded as one of the finest neo-classical interiors in existence.
