30 James Street calling on the public for historic pictures ahead of fifth anniversary
30 James Street Hotel is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, is calling on the people of Liverpool to submit historic pictures of the building or of their relatives working there.
Signature Living transformed the dilapidated Albion House in 2015, which was formerly the home of the White Star Line HQ, opening its doors as the stunning 30 James Street Hotel.
To mark its fifth anniversary, the hotel will have a spectacular light show displayed onto the exterior of the building, which is now one of Liverpool’s most popular hotels.
The light show will be displayed in September to mark its fifth birthday and will engulf the building, illuminating it for people to see far and wide.
The light show will feature images submitted by the public showcasing their connection to the building that was once home to the RMS Titanic.
These images can be of relatives or the building itself and can be submitted to: lightupjamesstreet@
Lawrence Kenwright, the hotel developer who revitalised the building in 2015, said: “It’s amazing to see how far 30 James Street has come. When we first started restoring it, it was totally derelict and in disrepair. I’m delighted that we’ve given it a new lease of life.
“To celebrate this, we really want the people of Liverpool to get involved and share with us their fantastic memories of the building, or pictures of their relatives working or being there. They will then all be featured in an amazing light show which will tell the building’s story and showcase its remarkable history.
The hotel will also invite people who submit the images to join them for a free celebratory evening in April inside the building’s famous grand hall.
