Property developer Peter Millican is founder and chief executive of Kings Place, which opened in 2008 and will host the fifth Kings Place Festival on 14-16 September. An entirely private venture, the building has mixed uses as the offices of companies including the Guardian, Network Rail and Veolia Water, the administrative base of the London Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Aurora Orchestra, and as an arts centre - housing an art gallery and three concert spaces seating 420, 300 and 100 people.
All events at the Kings Place Festival are either free or £4.50 online. All the resident orchestras will be represented, with other performers including the Chilingirian and Sacconi quartets, cellists Matthew Sharp and Matthew Barley and pianist Leon McCawley. There are also jazz and comedy performances in a programme of 107 events. Box office (add £2 booking fee) 020 7520 1490.
