St. George's Hall Concert Room
'Just played here and were totally blown away by the experience. Surely one of the great chamber music halls in the world! A delight to behold and a joy in which to play. A priceless gem!' Brodsky Quartet
St George’s Hall was officially reopened on St. George's Day, 23 April 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales, after a magnificent facelift that has restored the opulence of this neo-classical jewel.
Designed by Charles Cockerell, who became the main architect of St George's Hall in 1851 and is largely responsible for its interiors, the Concert Room was also known as the Golden Concert Room and is considered by many to be the best room in the building. It played regular host to Charles Dickens who held many of his readings there, describing it as ‘the most perfect room in the world’.
The 480-seat venue features elegant decoration in white, honey, and cream and a cast iron ‘wickerwork’ balcony supported by female figures known as caryatids. A superb crystal chandelier hangs in the middle of the room while Ravenhead glass mirrors situated at the back of the stage create stunning reflections.
Liverpool Philharmonic has an extensive line-up of concerts in St George's Hall Concert Room. Its excellent acoustics and intimate atmosphere make it a perfect venue for chamber music, various acclaimed quartets.
Seating at St George’s Hall is reserved, except for the balcony area which is unreserved. Please be aware that some of the seating has limited leg room. If you are tall, please let the box office know when booking your tickets and they will advise accordingly.
