The Blackheath Society
Blackheath, with its Village and adjacent Heath, is a unique London environment. The Blackheath Society, one of the country's oldest amenity societies, formed in 1937, exists to preserve and enhance our area. Please join us in helping to do so. In this site you can see what we do, and how you can help. More information >>
POP CONCERTS ON BLACKHEATH
The Society has been working hard, in the context of the Blackheath Jont Working Partyi, on the issue of the two applications (The Good Hope Festival and OnBlackheath) to hold pop concerts on the Heath this summer. The BJWP had recommended strongly that one - the Good Hope Festival - be approved, as a trial, for this year. However Lewisham Council has given approval to both, albeit subject to conditions.
We will be working with the BJWP to scrutinise the detailed plans submitted, and to ensure that both concerts, if they proceed, are subject to a careful review.
