The Great Hall and Recital Room

Considered to be amongst the finest concert facilities available to any conservatoire, the Great Hall is a magnificent space. In addition, the Recital Room is an excellent venue for chamber concerts and a range of other events, including the popular Blackheath Sunday Morning Coffee Concert Series.

The ceiling in the Great Hall provides some of the best acoustics in the United Kingdom for large scale orchestral performance, and the Halls regularly welcome world renowned orchestras and ensembles for recordings and rehearsals.

Among those who choose the Great Hall as their preferred recording venue are Chandos Records, English National Opera, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia, and the distinguished conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Charles Mackerras and Richard Hickox.

Blackheath Halls is a wholly owned subsidiary of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and provides Trinity Laban with its regular base for large scale rehearsals and performance space.
