Welcome to CHARM 2017 in Liverpool!
The address of this venue is:
Named after the founders of Mersey Television and the creators of Brookside, the new £37.6million Redmonds Building is the latest addition to Liverpool John Moores University’s property portfolio.
The building is as ground-breaking as its namesakes, LJMU Honorary Fellows Phil and Alexis Redmond, with a High Definition TV studio, a TV news studio, a radio studio and a ‘green room’ – all provided by industry giants Sony Europe Limited and worth around £1million, resulting in facilities which are among the best in the UK.
The Redmonds Building is home to three of LJMU’s largest academic schools – the Liverpool Screen School, the Liverpool Business School and the School of Law – and is specifically designed to give students access to ‘real world’ environments where they can hone their professional skills before entering the job market for real.
Sitting directly in front of the Catholic Cathedral, its serpentine shape and landscaped grounds have become a recognisable feature in the Knowledge Quarter of the city.
