Join this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close to the ceiling of the Greenwich’s Painted Hall in this series of ceiling tours taking place while conservators restore 40,000 sqft of the ceiling’s painted surface. The Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich is described as ‘the Sistine Chapel of the UK’.

‘Michael Jackson: On the Wall’
On the Wall is not MJ paraphernalia but rather a mixed bag of art, both high and low, inspired by him or his image. He is a rich subject for any inquiry but it turns out that art is not up to it. Simplifying, it is art inspired by the King of Pop. It’s about so much more than just MJ, and it’s brilliantly put together. Something you can’t miss in London City!
