Philharmonic Hall

Wander just outside of the Liverpool city centre and just opposite the city’s second cathedral is where you’ll find the home of the oldest surviving professional symphony orchestra, the ‘Liverpool Phil.’

This is of course the art deco, Grade II listed Philharmonic Hall founded in 1840. When the venue first opened it was without a permanent concert hall. In 1846 the foundation stone was laid and the £30,000 (£2.78m in 2016) permanent concert hall opened in 1849. In 1933 the concert hall was tragically destroyed by a fire, but 6 years later the current hall opened and still stands strong.

Positioned on Hope Street, it’s complimented by its Georgian surroundings especially the ‘Philharmonic Pub’ another Grade II listed building, deemed the most richly decorated of Liverpool’s Victorian public houses. The quality of the gentlemen’s toilets is of particular interest too, we believe.

The superb Philharmonic Hall has a year-round programme of classical music, contemporary and chamber music, folk, roots, jazz, blues, rock, comedy and more. The hall even houses a cinema screen where guests can enjoy classic films.
