EDGAR WOOD VICTORIA PARK

Edgar Wood Victoria Park is one of very few Grade 1 listed buildings in Manchester standing in manicured gardens it’s ideal for weddings, bar mitzvahs, family celebrations, parties and corporate events.

History

The Grade I listed building was designed and named after its architect Edgar Wood. It exhibits an exquisite Expressionist style with Art Nouveau details. Building commenced in 1903 and was completed in 1907. Its original function was as a church for the Christian Scientists based in Boston, USA.

The design of the building is reminiscent of the German Romanticists of the 18th Century the same place that Walt Disney got his influences for the castle located at the entrance of Disneyland.

The small gate house invites you into a space which itself embraces you as you approach the wonderful Art Nouveau doorway.

The interior is made up of arches which lead to the Marble reredos. The balcony screen at the rear of the main hall was inspired by the Islamic art of North Africa but, like the reredos, is reminiscent of Viennese Secessionist design around the same time. Finally, there is a beautiful Art Nouveau fireplace – a deep emerald green colour – which ‘would not be out of place in British Museum’ located in the Green Room.
