Set in the Cheshire countryside, just a few minutes from the M56, our elegant
Georgian mansion is a truly memorable place to hold your event.
Trafford Hall was built in 1756. In 1993, after years of
searching for an appropriate venue, Anne Power (Professor at London School of
Economics and acting Chair of Trafford Hall) visited a beautiful, yet
dilapidated, Grade II listed Georgian Manor House nestled in the Cheshire
countryside. Grand Metropolitan agreed to buy Trafford Hall for the charity,
following support from government (Sir George Young), business (John Laing
Charitable Trust, McAlpines, NatWest, BT) along with the Duke of Westminster
and Chester City Council.
In 1995 the Centre was officially opened by Prince Charles
following a programme of low cost restoration of the house and construction of
24 eco-chalets within the walls of the Victorian sunken garden, using
unemployed young trainees from Runcorn and Prince’s Trust. The total cost of
the work was a third of the original estimate, and was funded 1/3 private, 1/3
government and 1/3 charity.
