At St George's Hall, Concert Room, St George's Place, Liverpool L1 1JJ
This unique neo-classical building is the centre of Liverpool's traditional cultural forum whose foundation stone was laid in 1838. It was built as a result of separate competitions to create a fitting space for the aspirational city to hold its music festivals and other assemblies and contains the vastly ornate Great Hall with its vaulted ceiling, Minton tiled floor, replete with maritime and civic symbolism and is also home to a massive pipe organ. The Small Concert Room at the Northern elevation of the Hall has been described as the 'Albert Hall in miniature' and is circular in design with a proscenium arch stage and is flanked by caryatids, female sculptural figures which are designed to give the impression of supporting the fine lace work of the iron balconies. Unusually, the Hall also houses the Crown and Civil Court which were working courts until the 1980's when the Court Service moved to new premises in Derby Square. The ground floor and basement levels also house holding cells for prisoners and the condemned cell. St George's Hall can lay claim to one of the oldest ventilation and air conditioning systems in the world, the workings of which can be seen in the lower basement level and throughout the Hall.
