No. 68 Hope Street
After purchasing the building next door, this has helped us expand some of our provision as well as ease our enduring pressure on space. (Please see images in the main carousel above).
Aside from this, there is the romance. The Liverpool School of Art was, at one time, an annex to our main building and was where John Lennon studied art. So we now have two buildings where Paul, George and John spent time learning.
We’ve completed the main building work, without quite reaching the required funding.
Recognition for donating is a personal choice. Some donors may wish to remain anonymous; some would like recognition of their generosity.
If you wander round our Mount Street building today, you’ll find thank you plaques on the back of seats in what is now The Paul McCartney Auditorium, above doors leading to a variety of rooms and on the main stone staircases.
Taking this experience as a guide, we’ve decided to launch this appeal along the same lines.
Naming the building
Naming the building would be the highest form of recognition. The sky’s the limit for that one, so we’ve decided to keep quiet about the sum and hope for the best.
On a more modest, but essential level, here are some ways in which your donation could be recognised:
- Seat in the new performance space £200 (individual brass name plate on seat backs)
- Donations Wall (individual brass name plate on the entrance wall)
- Standard plate (larger than a seat plate) £300
- Medium plate (could acknowledge two names) £500
- Large plate (could acknowledge four names) £1,000
- Naming a studio £20,000 - £50,000 (donation varies with room size)
