Unique and affordable

Unique and affordable spaces in the heart of Liverpool’s Georgian quarter. Our venue is located right in the middle of a striking Georgian terrace, just off Liverpool’s bustling Hope Street. We are 10 minutes’ walk from Lime Street and Central train stations and on the city’s major bus routes.

Originally built as a synagogue in the 1850s, Unity now houses two state of the art performance spaces and a light-filled bar area whilst maintaining some of its original architectural flourishes. We are a popular host of celebrations, talks and screenings as well as meetings and conferences.

As a registered charity, all income from our building hires goes back into our work with the communities of Merseyside, ensuring their voices are seen and heard on our stages.
