History

Grand Central Hall was opened in 1905 as the Central Hall of the Liverpool Wesleyan Mission,p 285 "The Buildings of England - Lancashire: Liverpool and the south-west", Richard Pollard and Nikolaus Pevsner, Yale University Press, 2006] replacing a former mission and Wesleyan chapel dating from 1790.

Built to a design by Bradshaw and Gass of Bolton, the new building had a capacity of 3576 people, and was also used from its opening until at least 1944 as the New Century Picture Hall cinema.

In 1990 the Methodists sold Central Hall. Major restoration work was undertaken in 1997/98 and from November 1998 to around 2000 or 2001 the building became the Barcelona bar and nightclub. [ [http://www.grandcentralhall.com/history.asp Grand Central Hall - History] ]

Current Use

After the closure of the Quiggins Centre on School Lane in 2006, a dozen of the 30 plus traders relocated to the Grand Central Hall whilst others moved on to and around Bold Street or dissolved themselves. In early 2007, Roscoe Hall on the first floor opened with many new and diverse shops.
