Visited this venue to see Josh Widdicombe, the actual gig by Josh was brilliant but the bar at the venue was absolutely appalling, the staff were clueless and the management seemed to be happy just to sit back and watch this without providing any assistance. It was a shame because it would have made the evening a completely different experience. Someone at the venue needs to get a grip of the situation

I was at my first Blackheath Halls Tea Dance yesterday and what a lovely afternoon it was. The hall is a wonderful, large space ideal for dancing or having any other large functions. I also noticed a lot of fliers for concerts, music events and various activities so it's clearly a very busy venue, with a lot happening.

I'm delighted to learn this venue was rescued in the 1980's, as it would've been criminal to have lost it.

I like that they've considered accessibility, as from the moment you arrive you have the option of a ramp-way or stairs, then once inside facilities (hall, bar / seating area and toilets) are all on one level so it's ideal for those who appreciate having everything on one level.

There were plenty of staff about so any issues, they would be close at hand.

Ladies toilets are plentiful, slightly tired but clean and well tended to with nice (branded)hand wash.

All in all, a fabulous afternoon for a Tea Dance and I'm looking forward to the next.

It's less than 2 minutes from Blackheath Train station {turn right out of station, cross at mini roundabout and you can see the Halls in front of you} but be warned; Lee Road is a very steep so if in 4" stiletto heels like me, or if you have accessibility issues, be prepared for that.

I myself came from North Greenwich (Jubilee Line) took the 108 bus from bus stop Band was there in about 20 minutes, even with road work diversions, so that's my favoured route.

We went to see Rob Beckett "Mouth of the South" gig at the Blackheath Halls on Saturday and had a fab evening! We laughed so much and enjoyed a drink in the bar beforehand (get there early and you won't have to wait long and you also get 20% off drinks!!!). The Halls are actually a good venue even if we were near the back. Definitely worth a comedy night out!

Mark Taylor (Flute) and Gabriella Jones (Harp) with Stephan Elenberger (Piano) provided an absolutely outstanding hour's worth of entertainment. Their complete mastery of their respective instruments enabled them to entertain us with a recital that would not have been out of place in the Albert or Festival Halls - and it was free! If you have the chance to see any of the remaining concerts make sure you go. Young talent like this deserves a much wider audience. The concert was one of a series at 6.00 pm, lasting for one hour. It was such an thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Beautiful building next to the conservatoire which many people mistake for each other... I did.
Staff very helpful.

Went with my adult daughter to see Jimmy Carr - never been to this venue before but really liked it and would look for events here in the future. It's a two minute walk from Blackheath train station, nice bar area, friendly staff and the tiered seating meant a good view wherever seated.

Attended the Trinity Laban Saturday afternoon performance of Kipps Half a Sixpence, fantastically talented cast, performed in this loverly little theatre, even though COVID restrictions were in place the clever layout of the tables created a pleasant viewing experience. The theatre itself has a reasonably prised bar with a pleasant atmosphere

After almost a year of refurbishing I was at Blackheath Halls for a Ballroom & Latin afternoon of dancing and it's stunning. From the moment you walk in the revamped light, airy reception area is a taste of what's to come.

The cafe / bar to the left is brighter, more organised and with a long bar so I imagine queuing during intervals is less of an issue now. They are yet to offer non-dairy milks as both myself and staff were asking but I fully expect that to be rectified.

All cups, cutlery and glassware seem to be new too and the various areas to sit in whether at a table or on the long banquette seating, are really comfy.

The main hall has fully retractable seating so for our dance event the gorgeous new floor was a real bonus using the entirety of the floor space. The few areas of the floor yet to be sealed were diligently taped by staff to prevent any heels getting stuck in them.

The revamped fresh and efficient ladies toilets were excellent with lovely Astonish Silke hand wash (a vegan product I have at home) which was not unnoticed nor unappreciated by me.

It's less than 2 minutes from Blackheath Train station {turn right out of station, cross at mini roundabout and you can see the Halls in front of you} but be warned; Lee Road is a very steep so be prepared for that especially in rainy or slipper weather.

I travel from Highams Park via Stratford to North Greenwich (Jubilee Line) then catch the 108 bus from bus stop B which takes about 15 minutes to Lee Road.It's just a short walk up to the roundabout and it's on the left after the Music academy (look for the floral piano in their frontage) .

It's always well worth the journey as it's a wonderful venue with friendly, lovely staff and beautiful surroundings . . . I've already booked the next 3 dances to start 2019.

Blackheath Halls is 2 minutes walk from Blackheath station (South Eastern) and bus stops, so is easier to get to than many Central London concert venues.

It has been refurbished recently and slope-seating installed in the main hall so everyone gets a good view. The acoustics are good so this is now a first rate venue.

The bar area has also been redesigned. It now has a long bar so drinks can be served quickly at the intervals. The hall does not include a restaurant but this is unnecessary as Blackheath Village has many lovely restaurants and pubs if you want to include a meal with your outing.

The staff are helpful and friendly - many are students at the nearby Trinity Laban music school.

In summary, a great venue for concerts and other events. Easy to get to.

Watched an evening of acoustic music with nine different duets/soloists playing their own music. Beats watching cover bands every time. The main hall is a great venue with lovely staff and good facilities. Support your local independent venues!
