The Venue

Blackheath Halls is a beautiful listed building, built in 1895 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and provides a regular base for large scale student rehearsals and performances, including the annual Trinity Laban opera. It is located just a mile away from the Old Royal Naval College site in nearby Greenwich village, easily accessible by mainline trains or by car. Blackheath village also boasts a wealth of fine restaurants, bars and shops.
