The Bridgewater Hall

This fabulous building is one of the major landmarks of Manchester's economic and cultural regeneration. It boasts a state-of-the-art 2340 seat auditorium; home to the world-famous Halle Orchestra and the Manchester Philharmonic. The interior is starkly modern, with an enormous glass façade, high ceilings, brushed metal and chrome details. There is also a superb restaurant and some of the best corporate entertainment facilities in the city. Stop by the stylish gift shop if you're looking to buy greetings cards, music, jewellery or gifts.

Band on the Wall

Situated out beyond the Northern Quarter, this is a 240-capacity venue with a character and niche of its own. The interior is dark and atmospheric with burgundy-painted fittings and a fantastic little balcony offering an eagle-eye view of the stage. Its strength lies in the diversity of the live music it puts on. There is a continual program of non-mainstream specialist music including jazz, reggae, dub, African, folk and Latin, attracting a multicultural audience of all ages. As a club venue at weekends, it hosts a selection of genuinely inventive club nights that attract an eclectic crowd.

Palace Theatre

Affectionately known as the Grand Old Lady of Oxford Street, the Palace Theater is an imposing 1955 capacity Victorian theater that originally opened its doors to the public in July 1891. It lends itself to larger productions of touring plays, opera, ballet and popular musicals such as Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. Inside, the auditorium is decorated in the classical style, with lots of gilded features and plush deep red velvet upholstery. There are two steep-sided upper tiers, stalls and several ornate boxes, giving the whole place a feeling of good old-fashioned grand opulence.

The Opera House

The Opera House is a grand old 2000-capacity theater, which was first opened on Boxing Day 1912. It has played host to many of the biggest stars of British theater, including Noel Coward, Ivor Novello and Ralph Richardson, throughout the intervening decades. The lavish, opulent decor in rich reds and golds still evoke the atmosphere of that classic, bygone age. Although the Opera House was closed due to financial constraints in 1979, it was resurrected and re-opened in 1986, and has become the successful home of modern West End musicals, operas, plays and other large-scale shows.

Manchester Academy

Manchester Academy is a modern, purpose-built, mid-sized music venue linked to Manchester University. Located close to both the student union and the Contact Theatre, it is a central hub of the entertainment scene in the area. Somewhat resembling a dark aircraft hangar inside, it has a capacity of approximately 2300 people plus a large bar and chill-out area where you can relax or just enjoy a drink. Popular as a tour venue with many established contemporary rock and indie bands, on occasion it is also home to some of the larger national club nights.

Samlesbury Hall

Samlesbury Hall is a majestic manor house, dating back to the 14th Century. Born out of the imagination of Gilbert de Southworth, this historic house welcomes visitors who wish to learn about its legacy and history. It also doubles up as an event space for concerts, exhibitions, functions, weddings, receptions and theatrical acts.
