Our exceptional facilities provide a first-class training ground for you to hone your craft – and we're continually investing.
We're based across two Grade II listed buildings – The Institute and The Art School.
These were formerly the Liverpool Institute for Boys (Paul McCartney and George Harrison's old school) and the Liverpool College of Art (where John Lennon studied).
As well as providing high-end rehearsal and performance spaces for performers, students on technical subjects have access to the latest equipment to enable you to produce professional-standard work.
Our performance spaces are in constant use for teaching on our technical courses, as well as rehearsals and performances from students studying performance-based subjects, and masterclasses. Each year over 50 performances take place from dance theatre to musicals, from costume dramas to music festivals.
Teaching and Practice Rooms
Lecture theatres, workshop spaces and seminar rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art presentation equipment and free wi-fi. Practice rooms and other larger rehearsal spaces and studios can be booked by students outside of timetabled teaching sessions.
Our recording studios, digital audio labs, live sound facilities and broadcast and mobile equipment mean students can collaborate and work creatively using industry standard equipment.
LIPA Bar and Canteen
Not just for drinking and eating, the bar and canteen are the hub of social activity within LIPA. Both spaces are licensed for performances too.
