About Us

Blackheath Halls is an outstanding centre for music and the performing arts in southeast London, presenting
a year-round programme of events including music, comedy, talks and literary events, and children’s theatre.

Our renowned community engagement programme includes the annual Blackheath Halls Opera, Musical Theatre courses, an orchestra, gospel and classical choirs, and Blackheath Halls Youth Choir, with gifted young people from our local boroughs.

Blackheath Halls is a wholly owned subsidiary of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and provides the Music Faculty with its regular base for large-scale rehearsals and performances. We also offer a popular venue for recordings and rehearsals by major London orchestras and ensembles, as well as for a range of commercial hires and social events in our two performance spaces, The Great Hall and The Hearn Recital Room.

Over the past year, Blackheath Halls’ programme consisted of 1,003 live performances, rehearsals and other activities, attended by 49,552 people. A registered charity, we are able to offer this range of activity through income from tickets, hires and our in-house bar, along with support from various Trusts and Foundations, and over 300 generous members of our newly-revitalised Friends and Patrons scheme.
