Blackheath Halls, Grade II* Listed Victorian Performance Halls




External repair, conservation and restoration of Grade II* Listed Victorian Performance Hall
Blackheath Halls, located in the bustling village of Blackheath in South East London, is a Grade II* Listed building.
Built in 1895 by William Webster, Blackheath Halls, along with the Conservatoire of Music and the School of Art, is part of the oldest surviving purpose built cultural complex in London. It was originally used as a venue for orchestral and choral works and played host to some of the most famous musical performers of the early 20th century.
Through the support of local businesses and the community, Blackheath Halls was saved from demolition in the 1980s. Following extensive restoration, the Halls operates as a charitable trust to pursue the ethos of its Victorian founders.
The works comprised of the careful restoration and repair of the external brickwork; the consolidation, repair and redecoration of the ornate external render panels; the stabilisation of the external gables; the renewal and repair of the external joinery and windows; the restoration of the original stained glass panels and the renewal of existing roof coverings.  This project represented the first of a three phase programme of works - the other phases of work are subject to fund raising.
