Yoko Ono Centre on-site

Exciting building progress for the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre

Photographs taken in December reveal exciting progress on the University of Liverpool’s new teaching and performance facility, the Yoko Ono Lennon Centre. Building work on the Centre commenced in early 2020 with a completion date of late 2021.


The Centre will house the 400-seat Tung Auditorium with space for a 70-piece orchestra, as well as the state-of-the-art 600-seat Paul Brett Lecture Theatre. A welcome addition to University of Liverpool campus, the Centre will have outstanding front and back of house facilities including box office and reception, practice and green rooms allowing students to immerse themselves in all aspects of the arts.

As well as offering students a world-class teaching experience, the Centre will support a wide range of activities including the Music Department’s popular Lunchtime Concerts series bringing the student and local community together to enjoy enriching musical experiences.
