Nile Rodgers & CHIC have enjoyed widespread mainstream success since their inception in the late ‘70s thanks to a string of hits including Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance, while the band’s co-founder and frontman Nile Rodgers has produced and played on some of the biggest-selling albums of all time. The CHIC live show features all of the band’s hits as well as songs from Rodgers’ collaborations with Madonna, David Bowie, Daft Punk and Diana Ross.

Transforming The Old Royal Naval College’s riverside location into the ultimate open-air venue, Greenwich Music Time has hosted concerts from the likes of Ray Davies, George Benson, Little Mix, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, The Jacksons, Goldfrapp, Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum and many more since its inception in 2013. Providing music fans with the opportunity to experience a variety of outdoor concerts against the backdrop of Greenwich’s historic landscape, the event has proved hugely popular and celebrates its 5th anniversary in 2018.
