Lochaber Halls are set on the borders of Lee and Hither Green in Lewisham. The Halls were built in 1910 and were given listed status in 1973. The halls are managed by committee of trustees under the auspices of The Lochaber Hall Community Association, a registered charity, Chaired by Jonathan White and administered by Simon Higgs of Tiltyard London Limited and Andrei the caretaker. In 2018 a new floor was laid in the main hall, and the original ceiling restored and returned to former glory. Both toilets at the halls have since undergone a major make-over and soundproofing has been put in the help keep the two halls separate from each other.
From Monday to Friday, and on Saturday mornings, the halls are used by various groups hiring the space to provide a variety of activities from pre-schoolers to senior citizens, with classes for English and Maths for school children, refugee support groups, ballroom dancing, Karate, art classes and yoga classes as well as a regular drop-in play group for pre-schoolers in the small hall.
On Saturday afternoons the main hall is available to hire for children’s birthday parties – being large enough for a variety of activities including bouncy castles, it works really well for children from toddlers to teenagers, although you can’t get many of the latter on a bouncy castle! Our kitchen is also a useful amenity on party days, with plenty of space to make cups of tea and light the candles for the cake. Party hire is only available on Saturday afternoons, we do not hire out in the evenings and do not hire to groups or parties on a Sunday. To enquire about party booking please click here.
We do not have a car park. Parking on the roads in and around the halls have different sets of restrictions, so please make note when you park – generally if you do not have a permit to park on a weekday lunchtime then you will probably have to purchase a ticket or risk a fine, and check the details on the road where you park at all other times as some roads have permanent restrictions in place.
