About Trinity Laban

Blackheath Halls is a wholly owned subsidiary of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Home to more than 1,000 exceptionally talented students from more than 60 countries, Trinity Laban is one of the world’s leading centres for the study of the performing arts.

Principal performing and rehearsal space

Blackheath Halls serves as the principal performing and rehearsal space for Trinity Laban’s internationally famous Faculty of Music. In mornings and afternoons during term time, you can often hear classical, contemporary and jazz choirs and ensembles honing their craft, under the direction of some of the UK’s leading musicians.

Students benefit not only from using the Halls’ atmospheric facilities for performances, rehearsals, recordings and community events, but also from being able to learn from visiting performing artists, including internationally renowned bass Matthew Rose and the Jette Parker Young Artists from the Royal Opera House.


Audiences at the Halls benefit from being able to hear some of the world’s most talented young performers, often in free events. The likes of Laura Jurd (BBC New Generation Artist) and James Newby (winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Award for Singers) gave early performances at the Halls.

Trinity Laban performances include:

  • Side by Side orchestral concerts, featuring talented students performing with the UK’s top orchestral musicians;
  • an annual Summer Opera production;
  • the regular free Beats in the Bar series of informal jazz recitals;
  • the Blackheath Halls Showcase Series from our most talented recitalists and chamber ensembles;
  • an annual Musical Theatre Showcase;
  • engaging and entertaining Schools’ Concerts; and
  • innovative programmes from our String, Wind and Chamber Orchestras.
