Covid 19 restrictions: we are still open for rehearsal and filming hire but all our onsite classes are cancelled at the present time. Many of our teachers have online classes on offer.

Next up: A look back at 2020 – 10 minutes packed with contributions from so many talented artists.

Longfield Hall exists to meet the changing needs of our local community Myatt’s Fields, Camberwell SE5. The Minet family built the hall, which opened in 1889, as a place where the whole community could come together. Longfield Hall Trust is committed to implementing the family’s vision for this and succeeding generations.
The hall is Grade II listed and is run by Longfield Hall Trust, a group of local community volunteers.

What’s On

Over 700 people use us each week for a wide range of activities. We are also home to the Nest Pre-School and McAlpine Dance School.

Dark and light theatre

The Dark and Light Theatre was the UK’s first Arts Council funded black-led theatre company in the UK and based at Longfield hall until 1975.

Hire us

Longfield hall is increasingly used a space for theatre, music and dance performances. We are keen to provide space to nurture emerging artists, new writing and choreography.
We have two halls on offer to hire – the upper hall and lower hall. Our halls are available for parties, wedding receptions, rehearsals, fitness classes, meetings, film shoots, performances and community events.
