Town Hall opens its doors to the public

LIVERPOOL'S Town Hall will be opening its magnificent surroundings to the public for the next 2 weeks starting from Monday, 17 August 2015.  Members of the public can take a look at the splendour of 1 of the finest surviving 18th Century buildings for free.

Liverpool's Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Concepcion said:- "It's so easy to overlook the wonderful architecture the City has to offer, especially if you live here, but this is a fantastic opportunity for both locals and visitors to come and see 1 of our many gems. The Town Hall open days are always hugely successful and I hope we can encourage as many people as possible to come and see this amazing building for themselves. This year we also have a beautiful exhibition for visitors to enjoy which will hopefully make the experience even more memorable."

On entering the building visitors will be greeted by the splendid flemish wooden fireplace from 1893. The entrance hall also features a floor made up of hand painted tiles and showing the Liverpool's Coat of Arms. And in an effort to record the City's history the grand frescoes surrounding the fireplace depict important events including the granting of the Charter by King John in 1207.

There will also be a stunning exhibition on display in the East Reception; Threading Dream; an exhibition of textiles and embroidery, from The Sreepur Village Bangladesh and rural areas. All the work on display is created in adverse poverty by amazing women.

In addition handmade cards, silk scarves and other gifts will be available to buy with all proceeds going to the 600 children and 150 destitute mothers who live at Sreepur plus the Street Children project.

A pop up café, provided by Yacht Club Liverpool, will be available on all open days selling light refreshments for anyone wanting to sit and enjoy their surroundings. And as if that isn't enough you can follow in the footsteps of dignitaries such as Her Majesty the Queen and famous Liverpool sons, the Beatles or take time out to view the breathtaking ballrooms and charming chandeliers.

Taking a walk around the Town Hall is free of charge and there is no need to book, but if you wish to go along on one of the guided tours (conducted by legendary local Liverpool historian Steve Binns) there is a charge of £3.00 per person and as places are limited advance booking is recommended simply call the bookings team on:- 0151 233 3020, to reserve your place.
