Much Loved Venue Freemasons' Hall Being Redeveloped.
Hall Will Remain Open to the Public.
Renamed as Manchester Hall, the venue where we hold most of our tastings is to be reborn. There are to be two new restaurants, a roof terrace as well as improved meetings facilities.
Freemason Membership Has Dwindled in Recent Years
Because there are far fewer Freemasons these days the Grade II listed building has been underused and unprofitable. New owners are to breathe new life into it whilst preserving most of the splendid features.
Bedrooms For Conference Delegates to be Built.
Rooms for conference attendees are to be built on vacant land currently used for car parking. The fantastic entrance hall with its splendid pillars and Spanish gallery features will still be the centre piece of the building.
