100th Annual General Meeting of Historic Buildings & Places

  • Hallé St Peter's, 40 Blossom St, Manchester, M4 6BF
  • TBC

Join Historic Buildings & Places on Saturday 1st June 2024 as we celebrate our centenary AGM in the city of our founding.


The meeting will be held on Saturday 1st June 2024 at Hallé St Peter’s, Ancoats, Manchester.

Hallé St Peter’s is a Grade II listed former church at the heart of Ancoats, an area rich in important industrial heritage, which is currently the focus for regeneration and development.

Originally built in 1859, St. Peter’s was the first Anglican church built in the predominantly Roman Catholic community. The church was initially able to seat up to 1,336 people but alterations in the early 1900s reduced this capacity by c.300. A period of post-war decline saw the church finally close in 1960 and the building was turned to mixed use. It was listed in 1989 but subsequently suffered from vandalism. After eventual large scale restoration works, the building was reopened in 2013 and a multi-award-winning three-storey extension was added in 2019.

During the centenary AGM, we’ll hear from guest speaker Eamonn Canniffe about the history of the Society. We’ll also enjoy a Luxury Afternoon Tea and toast to the Society’s success with a glass of Prosecco!

We look forward to seeing you there!
