The Music Halls project is a non-profit, grassroots organisation reimaging underused community spaces such as churches and other historic buildings to allow musical concerts to occur with cultural significance.
We Install sound and lighting systems to equip community spaces to be better used. Then run community engagement projects that connect with local audiences, co-creating arts program appealing to the many.

Sound. Light. Streaming. We help venues get it right.
These are the building blocks of engaging experiences. And we work with industry leaders of sound and lighting systems to ensure you are reaching the widest audience possible, with high quality productions.
Are you looking for great artists to perform in your space?
We work with a vast roster of artists, promoters, and agents. Using our network, we help spaces like yours build a programme that drives up audiences’ attendance numbers.
For grassroots venues to thrive, they need to connect with their local communities.
We work with you to design bespoke music programmes that engage with regular event attendees and also under-represented groups and communities, ensuring the offer is highly accessible.
Case Study In Development
St Mary’s Walthamstow
We helped secure £1.6million (Matched to £3.3million) Heritage Grant, to turn St Mary’s Walthamstow into a world-class performing arts centre. Here we’ve worked closely with Music Venue Trust and d&b audiotechnik securing a Grassroots Live Music fund from the Arts Council, to completely overhaul its production offer. This was the only medium capacity venue in Waltham Forest & it’s critical that we upheld high production values so that residents, visitors and streamers have a cutting edge venue to experience excellent art, making the borough vibrant, inclusive and a happier place to live.
Curate entertainment that connects with your audience
St John’s Leytonstone
We were asked by the leadership at St John’s to install a brand-new sound system and consult on their lighting design. We were then later that year able to bring a program of arts Curacion that directly linked with the current power of culture within Waltham Forest. Through this Curacion we are able to work with a list of artists such as Damon Alburn and have them work with and perform next to young people from local colleges.
