Home to Classic FM's Orchestra in North-West England - the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic - Liverpool Philharmonic Hall has its own fascinating history as well as plans for the future.
Commissioned in 1844, the original Philharmonic Hall was designed to seat an audience of 2,100 and an orchestra of 250. The foundation stone was laid in 1846 and construction began the following year. Felix Mendelssohn was invited to compose a cantata for the hall's opening but he died before he could finish the job.
