St. George’s Hall Seeks New Trustees

The Trustees of St. George’s Hall wish to appoint three new members to its board. In particular, they are looking for trustees who can bring the following skills and knowledge:

  • Strategic organisation, design and development
  • Knowledge of heritage
  • Fundraising skills
  • Entrepreneurial skills
  • Ambassadorial skills

In particular, the following are prioritised as of distinctive interest:

  • Influencing – able to bring strong networks and to influence key stakeholders to help shape and advance the delivery of the strategy
  • Working with others – able to work as part of a strong non-executive and executive team at board meetings and in between formal meetings
  • Exercising judgement and balancing risk – interrogating information provided in order to inform decisions in the best interests of St George’s Hall in line with the Trust’s values, aims and objectives

Built in the early 1800s as a space for music festivals and the Civil and Crown Courts, St George’s Hall has always been at the heart of community life in the city of Liverpool. Since its opening in 1854, St George’s Hall has entertained hundreds of thousands of people. St George’s Hall is a Grade 1 listed building and is widely regarded as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world. It was reopened in 2007 by Prince Charles after a £23m refurbishment programme.

Behind the gold leaf and porticoes, the Hall has one of the greatest brick arches in the world and houses a priceless mosaic floor of 30,000 tiles, arguably the best preserved example of a Minton floor in the world. The Hall is also home to a concert organ complete with 7,000 pipes, beaten in size only by the one at the Royal Albert Hall in London and Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. The people of Liverpool love this building; it is a place of celebration, congregation and commemoration.
