Artist's Description

The foundation stone of St George’s Hall was laid in 1838 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria, but the actual building of the hall did not start until 1842.

The idea for the hall came from Liverpool citizens who were concerned about the lack of a place for the triennial music festivals. To fund it a subscription list was set up with shares available at £25 each and by January 1837 £23,350 had been raised.
However as usual, when building work commenced it went over budget.

At the same time a venue was being sought for the Civil and Crown Courts and fortuitously the same architect was employed to design both buildings so it was decided that one building would serve all needs.

It is possibly the only building where you could be tried for murder, have a ball or listen to a concert all under one roof.
