Blackheath Halls’ popular community engagement programme provides opportunities for over 1000 local people of all ages each year. The programme covers a wide range of genres including opera, gospel, musical theatre and classical and is designed to encourage as many people as possible to get involved with their community through collaborative music-making.

Our flagship community project driving artistic innovation is Blackheath Halls Opera, an outstanding inter-generational event which has been running since 2007 and gives community members of all ages a chance to perform live on stage with professional singers.

Support our Community Engagement Programme

It is thanks to our Friends and Patrons of Blackheath Halls members that we are able to continue to offer these activities for the whole community to enjoy. If you would like to become a Friend or Patron more information is available here.


It’s like an oasis of musical joy, creativeness and friendship
