10am – 6pm, Piazza Café Bar
Mount Pleasant, Liverpool L3 5TQ
Liverpool’s much-loved gem at the top of Mount Pleasant is being restored and brought back to life by Liverpool City Council. The City Council, in partnership with the Merseyside Buildings Preservation Trust, Historic England & the Wellington Rooms Steering Group have identified a range of potential uses which would transform this historic building. Views and opinions are being sought from local stakeholders, businesses, residents, students, and anyone who is interested in the future of this landmark building.
The Wellington Rooms was built in 1816 by public subscription as an assembly hall for the merchants and other residents of the new area of Liverpool we now know as Hope Street, a gathering place for the social elite. It is Grade II* listed and of tremendous historic importance. Modern memories are built on its use as the Irish Centre and there is huge affection for the building right across the city.
The future use of the Wellington Rooms needs to recognise the historic value of the building, and its important role as a gateway to the University and Knowledge Quarter.
The Merseyside Buildings Preservation Trust would be delighted if you could come along to a one day exhibition, where you can:
