The Cornerstone is the Creative Campus’ beautifully renovated grade II listed building, at the heart of which lie the Great Hall and the Grace Room; two truly unique banqueting spaces.
The Great Hall never fails to impress with its double height vaulted ceiling and wooden floors. It can hold up to 200 guests for a wedding breakfast and evening reception.
The Grace Room is full of character with bare brick walls and is flooded with natural daylight. It is the ideal setting for a smaller gathering, catering for up to 40 guests for a wedding breakfast.
Outside of the Cornerstone building, the wedding party can enjoy Angel Field; a renaissance-style garden providing a tranquil oasis in an urban setting. With its fountains, impressive flora and fauna and picturesque scenery, Angel Field not only creates a place of beauty and serenity, but also provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding day memories and photographs to be captured.
The Arbour Room is located in Hope Park’s EDEN building in Childwall and is perfect for wedding receptions, accommodating up to 90 guests for a wedding breakfast.
With a dynamic lighting scheme that can change colour and large windows, it is a bright and airy space. Using innovative sliding wooden panelled walls, it can either be separated from or opened up to include the adjoining space with bar facility to seat 150 guests, depending on your individual requirements.
The Arbour Room also adjoins the stylishly designed EDEN Lounge, where guests can relax and take advantage of the laid back atmosphere with its subtle lighting scheme and comfortable yet stylish furniture.
Our chefs are committed to ensuring your special day is complemented by equally special menus, offering quality produce at affordable prices. You can view sample menus here.
Liverpool Hope is committed to sustainability and where possible our ingredients are sourced for their low food miles.
Should you wish to customise your menu, we will be delighted to meet with you to discuss your ideas. Once your special day with us is confirmed, a tasting session can be arranged to help you select your own personalised menu.
Liverpool Hope University does not hold a wedding licence and so cannot perform wedding ceremonies. However, Liverpool Register Office is located in St Georges Hall, approximately ten minutes from the Creative Campus and 20 from Hope Park. For those who would like a religious ceremony or blessing, Liverpool’s faith communities offer many options.
