A Gem of a Venue
Oct 2021 • Couples
Although we live fairly locally and admired the lovely late 19C building whenever passing, Sunday was our 1st visit there. What a gem we have been missing all these years! A lovely venue, refurbished, light and airy. Great Hall has comfy modern raked seating with wide aisles and good view of stage. A wide variety of all types of performances from well known comedians through to all kinds of music and dance. Very reasonable seat prices, easy booking. As I have been shielding due to a serious medical condition I was delighted with the sensible covid precautions and majority present considereratly wore masks. Modern smart bar and good ordering service. Pleasant staff. Excellent plentiful and spotless modern ladies loos. Have already booked another show.

Loverly little theatre
May 2021 • Family
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

Return of live music
Oct 2020 • Solo
One of the biggest victims of Covid-19 has been live performance particularly drama and live music. Blackheath Halls has had to suspend its programme of orchestral concerts and stand-up comedy in its main theatre as well as Its Monday lunchtime chamber recitals in the upstairs room. It was therefore a real joy to be able to attend a live performance of chamber music this Sunday held necessarily in the main concert hall to enable social distancing. The performers were the all female Marysas Trio whose programme began with a doubly poignant piece for cello solo by Dmitri Smirnov dedicated to his late friend Sasha whilst the composer himself passed away only a month or two ago. The cellist was then Joined by the rest of the trio namely flute and piano for recreations of birdsong by Welsh composer Hilary Tann who is a Professor of music in the USA then a piano trio by the early romantic composer Carl Maria Von Weber. My only disappointment was that a performance of Prokofiev’s Flute Sonata Op.94, the most substantial work in the programme by far and quite a masterpiece, so much better than its transcription for violin, was restricted to its first and third movements. All the stranger given two of the composer’s descendants who live locally were in the audience. Also it proved difficult to purchase CDs after the performance as the card machine in the Box Office had malfunctioned thus necessitating a trip to a cash point to get the cash which is so rarely used these days.

Excellent refurbishment . Beautiful building & dance floor . Superb staff
Dec 2018 • Friends
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.

Newly Renovated, Great Venue
Dec 2018 • Couples
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.

Icarus night

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!

Trinity Laban Showcase Concert
Jun 2017 • Couples
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.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain @ Blackheath Halls
Feb 2017 • Friends
Big old barn of a building poorly suited for a concert. We felt more like being in a school assembly than a £26 concert, the small seats were pretty hard and uncomfortable for the two hour duration and as they were on a flat floor, the view of the performers was very poor from the seats at the rear. The Ukes were very good, but their sound system wasn't as good as I've experienced in other venues when we've seen them, it was more like a bass-heavy school disco! We'll be seeing the Ukes again, but not at this venue.

Superb old building . Lovely large dance /function hall . Nice location
May 2016 • Friends
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.
