The Stoller Hall is a live music performance and event venue in the heart of Manchester. Based alongside Chetham’s School of Music, we’ve established a reputation as the home of world-class chamber music.
The vibrant programme offers everything from chamber music, the best international touring artists, home-grown folk, contemporary takes on classical music, jazz, family concerts and the best of young musical talent. Running through the programme is the ethos of learning, collaboration and exchange which have come to epitomise Chetham’s School and The Stoller Hall’s role in the city.
As well as being home to the best in classical and contemporary music, The Hall is also available as a unique space to hire. From conferences to corporate lunches, organisations including The Princes Trust, Manchester City Football Club and the Association of British Orchestras are regularly choosing The Stoller Hall to hold their events.
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. With catering and drinks provided by our network of local producers, and acoustically isolated breakout spaces, The Stoller Hall is ideally placed to support your conference, and located directly opposite Victoria station, local and national transport networks are easily accessible.
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.”
