Venue Operations Trainee Ref:3005973

St George’s Hall is truly one of the most iconic venues in which to hold an event, celebration, wedding or conference in the whole of the North West region. The Hall can rightly claim to be the emotional heart of the region; it has been the spontaneous gathering place for the people of Liverpool in times of celebration, vigils, and commemorations. Important moments happen here from commemorative city gatherings following the deaths of the Beatles, John Lennon and George Harrison, to historic homecomings for Liverpool FC and Everton FC following Cup Final victories. St George’s Hall also hosted the Peoples’ Opening of Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2008, when Ringo Starr played from the roof of the building to over 50,000 people.
