Mountford Hall at the Guild


We have several venues both on and off campus that we use for different performances.

Concert Hall

A new, 400-seat performance auditorium will be built by the University of Liverpool, to enrich the cultural life of the city and deliver real world experience to students. Read more about the concert hall here.

The Leggate theatre is a two-tier auditorium, and the venue for our professional Wednesday Lunchtime Concert Series, and much of the annual Open Circuit Festival of New Music. Most of the finalist classical recitals are also programmed here.

The Eleanor Rathbone theatre is where the orchestras and the student theatre society rehearse and host their termly concerts and shows.

The biggest space on campus, Mountford Hall, located in the student guild, is used for our biggest events. It’s also a professional venue for the 02 Academy, so there are gigs, concerts and shows throughout the year. The guild also has the basement venue, The Cellar which is used as a night-club performance space.

Our popular music students perform in city public events, using Liverpool’s famous Zanzibar club along with acoustic sets at other venues such as Parr St. Studios. We want the students to get a real sense of public performance.

We are in close proximity to Liverpool’s two cathedrals with many possibilities for organ and choral performances.
