The two inscriptions on the sides of this tin tell us a great deal about the opening of this building. They read: ‘The opening in 1963 of the new 14-storey C.W.S administrative block in Miller Street, Manchester marks the C.W.S Centenary Year in permanent fashion. With its vigorous architectural style the building symbolises the enterprise with which the C.W.S enters its second century. Appropriately named, the C.W.S New Century Hall seats nearly 1,000. The Hall houses a fully equipped stage, dance floor, and cinemas. Among outstanding features are sculptured fibreglass panels by Stephen Sykes whose work in Coventry Cathedral is equally admired.’ The Hall mentioned here, is on record as having been used immediately and frequently, holding many large, official meetings and becoming well known for concerts.
