Liverpool’s jewel in the crown, St George’s Hall, has taken a step closer to opening a brand new visitor attraction in 2021 thanks to a £250,000 boost.

The funding, part of the government’s Culture Recovery Fund, will be invested in a high-tech digital visitor experience which will enable people to step back in time and see what life would have been like in the cells and courts of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The ambition is for the educational and informative project to combine 3D, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, in a first for the Grade I-listed building.

This initial funding will allow the St George’s Hall team to work with a specialist company, via a tender process, to deliver the digital vision, with the ambition to secure more funding in the new year for the project.

St George’s Hall was one of 77 organisations to receive a grant which was allocated by the National Heritage Fund and Historic England on behalf of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
