The Greenwich Academy of Music and Drama is an exciting venture for people living, working, and at school in and around the Borough of Greenwich, bringing performing arts groups and ensembles to all members of our community. The Greenwich Academy of Music and Drama Ltd was established in 2006 as an organisation through which to run performing arts ensembles, holiday courses and education workshops. We are a non-profit making company limited by guarantee and aim to provide all members with an experience which is positive, friendly, inspiring and above all of high artistic quality. We run a range of ensembles for wind, brass, percussion and singers during term-time and in the holidays. These ensembles, based on age and ability, provide a clear pathway for each individual's progression as their skills and knowledge develop: Greenwich Youth Band, Greenwich Wind Ensemble, Summer Music Course, Musical Theatre Holiday Course, Greenwich Community Choir, Greenwich Stage Right Marlborough, Greenwich Stage Right Charlton, Greenwich Academy Apprentice Scheme, Greenwich Youth Choir.

About Eltham

Eltham is in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, south east London. It has good transport to central London and is close to Greenwich and the Kent countryside.

Its main shopping area is the High Street, with diverse shops - the usual Boots, Marks & Spencer, Debnehams type shops but also many independent retailers. There are several smaller local shopping areas serving their communities.

Apart from an abundance of green space, Eltham abounds with history - Eltham Palace, favourite home of Henry VIII and run by English Heritage, is just off Eltham High Street, with Well Hall Pleasaunce and the Tudor Barn, just down the road and close to Eltham Station. This was once owned by the Roper family (Sir William Roper was married to Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas More), more recently lived in by Edith Nesbit and where she wrote The Railway Children.

A few of the famous names associated with Eltham are Bob Hope (he was born here, and our theatre is called "The Bob Hope Theatre"), Boy George who went to school here, Kate Bush bought a house here in the 1980s, Billy Bonds grew up here, Dennis Healy lived in The Eltham Hutments .... the list could go on.

Explore our Eltham community website - if you live here, check out the wealth of shops and activities going on here. Make sure that your club or event is listed here - if not, list them!
