There are some great forthcoming events coming to Blackheath that we wanted to share with you.
Blackheath Farmer's Market
Did you know that every Sunday there is a Farmer’s Market in the train station car park? It is the perfect place for fresh produce such as cheese, bread, meats, vegetables, fruits, preserves, fish and flowers. On Sunday 10th July, there will also be a Punch and Judy show. We love this local farmers market - not only is it a well established market, but there is a real sense of strong local community amongst the customers and producers.

The Blackheath Foodies Festival
There will be a ‘Foodies Festival’ on the Common from the 8th July-10th July. This will be the first festival at Blackheath, despite it being the 11th year the Foodies Festival has been running for. There will be lots of stalls with food and drinks and several Celebrity Chefs will be present, cooking their signature recipes. We are really looking forward to this festival, being foodie fans ourselves! This will be a fun day out with a live music stage as well as a chance to buy tasty treats, sample foods from around the world and opportunities to try different wines, champagne and beers.

'Banished' comes to Blackheath Halls
Blackheath Halls is considered to be the oldest purpose-built concert hall in the capital. It has had a wide range of different events held within it and is a great example of community-focused arts. There is just a few more days left to see 'Banished', a new opera performance for Trinity Laban, composed by award winner Stephen McNeff and librettist Olivia Fuchs. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of the first female prisoners transported to Australia in the early 19th century and how they came together to overcome their differences and survive adversity.
