With the country now in a national lockdown, the new programme of live jazz that we hoped to be able to start the year with will now be postponed.
But the music lives on and we’ll continue to bring you classical performances with our upcoming live streams including the Victoria String Quartet and Martin Roscoe and The Manchester Chamber Concerts Society. We’re looking forward to the day we can welcome physical audiences back, beginning with a concert from siblings Braimah and Konya Kanneh-Mason performing absolute classics by Elgar and Grieg. You can also rewatch some of our previous concerts here.
We’ve been here throughout the pandemic supporting musicians with a space for recordings and rehearsals, broadcasts and filming. And we’ll continue to remain open, providing a familiar space to make music and be creative during these uncertain times, with flexible packages and rates to suit any project. You can learn more about hiring our spaces here.
All our measures exceed the basic Covid-safety guidance to make sure our staff and musicians are safe – this includes ensuring 2 metre distancing and visible round-the-clock cleaning. Social distancing will remain necessary for the immediate future and we believe we’re amongst the safest environments out there. Read More here.
Music and culture will play a huge role in our recovery from this crisis. We’ll be working to support the night-time economy and bringing people back into the city centre as soon as it’s safe. Please help us to keep the music alive by donating what you can to help us to continue supporting musicians here.
Thank you to all who have stayed with us on this journey, we can’t wait to see you again!
