Overview
More
The original Liverpool Philharmonic Hall opened on 27 August 1849, and was an acclaimed and integral part of the cultural life of Liverpool before being dramatically destroyed by fire in 1933.The present day art-deco Philharmonic Hall, designed by architect Herbert Rowse and built on the same site, was officially opened on Monday 19 June 1939. Today it presents on average 250 events each year, of which approximately 70 are concerts by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and sells over 250,000 tickets annually.The venue has an illustrious tradition of bringing the top names from rock, jazz, classical, folk and roots, classical and contemporary music to Liverpool. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Buddy Holly all appeared at the Hall during their careers. The Hall also hosts classic and blockbuster films and premieres, shown on the unique Walturdaw rising cinema screen with Merseyside's only resident theatre organist, Dave Nicholas. Our new space in the building, the delightfully intimate and informal Music Room, has its own entrance on Sugnall Street, and houses jazz, roots, folk and unplugged gigs. Liverpool Philharmonic has been working with schools and the community since the 1940s, and the Learning programme now offers a range of exciting and inspirational opportunities to get involved in live music-making of the highest quality for thousands of people every year in the Hall and throughout the region.

Just been here for a Marillion Concert - not sure if it was my thing but brilliant but, very comfortable, accoustics & lighting made it for me. The hall is impressive, bar expensive, toilets not the easiest to get too if mobility is a problem.

We went here to see Laughterhouse Live which we always try to go and see. Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room. Good views and sound quality. There is a large bar and several other drinks stations.

I'd have said Liverpool Central but Lime Street is probably about the same but depends where you're coming from as they serve some different lines. 15-20 minutes walk away,
