An iconic building

History of the building

Our building is the most ambitious Freemasons’ Hall to survive in the North West of England with a lavish interior designed by Percy Scott Worthington. He was strongly influenced by the early 20th century classical revival, designing a confident imposing building in the stripped, classical style that was widely fashionable in the 1920s. Worthington was the architect for Manchester Cathedral; and also Manchester Grammar School, which he designed with Francis Jones.

We have transformed the former Freemasons’ Hall to give it a modern twist, while retaining all its original and Grade II listed features. Many of our imposing rooms retain elements of their Freemasons past; including the Goulborn which has a plasterwork all-seeing eye on the ceiling and chequerboard floor. Virtually untouched before our sensitive refurbishment, Manchester Hall occupies one of the most iconic buildings in the City.
