The little sister of the vast O2 Arena isn't really all that little. In fact, with a capacity of 2,350 – part standing room, part amphitheatre seating, sometimes part table seating – IndigO2 is one of the city's bigger venues. It attracts big soul, funk and pop-jazz acts (Roy Ayers, Stacey Kent), knackered old pop stars (Howard Jones, Gary Numan) and all points in between. It's hosted everything from the NME Awards to the legendary X-Factor boot camp sessions and Jongleurs Comedy Club twenty-fifth Anniversary shows. IndigO2 is worth the schlep out to Greenwich, especially if you go by boat.
