Manchester Town Hall
For the Joint Dinner (evening of the 29/8) and Conference Day (30/8), participants of the Summer School are welcomed at the Manchester’s truly wonderful neo-gothic Town Hall, the setting for many films, from Sherlock Holmes to The Iron Lady, and TV series, such as the BBC’s House of Cards.
F. A. Bruton wrote that “The Town Hall … is best viewed when the Square is empty and silent, as, for example, on Saturday afternoon or Sunday, and it is then that we may realise what a splendid “ruin” it will make, to excite the wonder of the South Sea Islander of the future.”
Dan Cruickshank described it as “…. arguably the greatest Gothic Revival public building anywhere in the world. It remains a glorious confection – functionally organised yet rich in inventive Gothic detail wrought out of beautiful and expensive materials.” James Stevens Curl described it as “a High-Victorian Gothic secular masterpiece that combines eclectic elements to form a style that can only be Victorian”. It was voted Greater Manchester’s favourite building by readers of theManchester Evening News in 2012 and in the same year featured in a series of Royal Mail stamps commemorating British landmarks.
