Refurbishment and restoration
The Halls have recently completed phase one of a major programme of refurbishment and restoration work, including refurbishment of the front of the roof, frontage brickwork, terracotta and stucco, and restoration of the front windows, stained glass and timberwork. In addition, the creation of a ramp to the front of the building and electronic doors has improved disabled access to the Halls.
Trinity Laban works in partnership with the local authorities of
Greenwich and Lewisham in running the Halls as an important local
amenity and arts centre.
Our regular performances form part of an extensive programme open to the public, not only in the Great Hall, but also in the Recital Room, and in the Café Bar.
The interface between practising professionals, the public, students and professorial staff, which Blackheath Halls makes possible, is a rare phenomenon in the Higher Education sector.
