A BRAND new calendar for 2017 has gone on sale in Greenwich celebrating the River Thames.
The ‘On The Thames’ calendar, now in its fourth year, includes the usual mix of tall ships, cruise ships, the Royal Navy and more, including returning favourites Gloriana, ST Portwey and PS Waverley.
Published by the same company as Greenwich.co.uk, there has in recent years been a Greenwich calendar and a Thames calendar but this year only one design has been produced.
“Although we’ve rested the Greenwich-specific calendar for this year, there’s plenty of Greenwich to enjoy in the Thames edition including a striking photo of a tug spraying water in front of the Old Royal Naval College and also Christmas lights up on the Cutty Sark,” explained maritime photographer and Greenwich.co.uk editor Rob Powell.
Some of the photos from this year’s calendar and previous editions are also on display in a brand new Thames exhibition at the Rivington bar & restaurant in Greenwich High Road.
Curated by Tony Othen from The Greenwich Gallery, the exhibition of Rob Powell’s river photography will be on display for approximately three months with photos available to buy as individual prints, mounted prints, or framed prints.
The On The Thames 2017 Calendar costs £6.99 and is available in Greenwich at the Rivington, the Warwick Leadlay Gallery, Sabo’s Newsagent, and Pegga Stores at Blackheath Standard.
