When it comes to venues in the city, St George’s Hall is one of Liverpool’s pride and joys. Since its opening in 1854, the Grade I listed building has hosted countless weddings, immersive experiences, exhibitions and other special events. Liverpool’s very own Beatles drummer Ringo Starr performed a live rooftop gig here back in 2008. The venue’s spectacular interior which includes beautiful mosaic tiles, red granite columns, and grand Victorian decor make this place one of the city’s most stunning locations to visit.
Towering about Liverpool at 331 feet tall, Liverpool Cathedral is one of the tallest non-spired churches in the world. In fact, it’s the fourth tallest building in the whole city. Construction started on the building in 1904 and this gorgeous structure is a Grade I listed building. It’s not hard to see why it’s been designated as such. It’s the longest cathedral in the world and the fifth largest in the world. This vast space looks even more beautiful illuminated with hundreds of flickering candles.
First opened in 1896, Sefton Park Palm House was constructed to house a spectacular selection of exotic plants from all over the world. Nowadays, although the glass building is still used as a home from home for these colourful flowers and greenery, it also hosts numerous events including community fundraisers and intimate music performances. As the flicker of candlelight dances along the glass panes of the venue’s enormous transparent dome, concertgoers can get up close and personal with the beautiful plants that surround them while listening to stunning renditions of their favourite songs.
There are few venues in Liverpool that are quite as historic or unique as St George’s Hall and Sefton Park Palm House. Both locations have been hosting events for over 100 years and show no signs of stopping any time soon. Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out. Simply sit back and savour the stunning classical takes on modern-day hits and the music of yesteryear inside some of the city’s most incredible venues.
