Discover the impressive Grand Central Hall like never before.

In need of an uplifting boost after months in lockdown? Well, one of Liverpool’s hidden gems bathed in candlelight awaits you. The Grand Central, which opened in 1905, provides the most spectacular scenery to the beautiful sounds of classical and jazz music, especially with the magnificent feature of its 100-year-old pipe organ. Relax and listen to tributes to legendary singers and musicians such as Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles, as well as compositions by legendary composers such as Ennio Morricone and Mozart all within one of Liverpool’s most historic buildings.


Following major success in cities such as Sydney, Barcelona, New York and Paris, Fever’s series of Candlelight concerts have found a spectacular home at The Grand Central– with both performers and guests alike enthusiastic to be surrounded by the building’s Art Nouveau architecture. This magnificent building was once a Methodist church, then it transformed to become the city’s first cinema called the New Century Picture Hall. It later housed the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra whilst the Philharmonic Hall was being rebuilt on Hope Street, meaning this breathtaking hall is a prime venue for concerts, but none have been draped in gorgeous candlelight quite like this before.


Ample candlelight provides a wonderfully intimate setting, with fantastic acoustics, thanks to its beautiful domed roof, the Grand Central carries the sounds created by the talented performers that take to the stage each event across the 1,300 seat venue. From wonderful violinists to some of the country’s best jazz musicians – there’s a whole lot of talent that walks through the doors of this Victorian hall, providing the most uplifting, candlelit experience in the city.

So, you’ve got an incredible venue, mesmerising candlelight, and some of the greatest musical compositions of all time – all that’s missing is you!
