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.
On 5 July 1933, smoke was seen pouring from the roof of the Philharmonic Hall. Firemen battled valiantly, but the combination of fierce heat, rapidly advancing flames and thick smoke was too much for them. The organ - which had been installed three years earlier at a cost of £2,000 - and many of the orchestra’s instruments were completely destroyed.
