The Stoller Hall puts you closer to the music, creating unforgettable live music experiences. Based in the heart of Manchester, our intimate concert Hall offers a world-class acoustic experience and our adventurous programme ranges from classical and chamber, folk and jazz to contemporary music, spoken word and comedy.
Running through the programme is the ethos of learning, collaboration and exchange which have come to epitomise Chetham’s School of Music and The Stoller Hall’s role in the city.
As well as a year-round programme of live events the magnificent Stoller Hall provides an impressive backdrop for conferences, exhibitions and events and is only a one-minute walk from Manchester Victoria Station. With fully accessible facilities, a bar and Box Office, there is access to breakout spaces within the complex, including the Carole Nash Hall and Oglesby Atrium, suitable for rehearsals, recordings, smaller meetings and participatory events.
In 2017 we opened our doors with a celebratory Opening Weekend, beginning with a live broadcast of BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and including performances by jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock, comedian Ted Robbins and conductor Sir Mark Elder, alongside an orchestra of student and professional musicians.
Soon after opening, The Hall’s stunning architecture which was designed by Stephenson STUDIO, received a national RIBA Award. Acoustics by Arup have set a standard described by Robert Beale from the Arts Desk as, “deliver(ing) the music as if every hearer is in the conductor’s shoes.”
As well as being home to the best in classical and contemporary music, The Hall is also available as a unique space to hire. Entering through our stunning Atrium, an impressive central space for exhibitors and receptions alike, The Stoller Hall boasts superb technical facilities and an in-house crew to ensure the smooth running of all events. The Stoller Hall is ideally placed to support any event or conference; located directly opposite Victoria station, within easy access to local and national transport networks.
From conferences to corporate lunches, organisations including The Prince’s Trust, Manchester City Football Club and the Association of British Orchestras are regularly choosing The Stoller Hall to hold their events.
