New programme for 2024 unveiled

We’ve announced our new programme for 2024 and there’s something for everyone from classical music to jazz, folk, Bollywood, stand-up comedy and more.  

The venue, part of Chetham’s School of Music in the heart of Manchester, brings nationally and internationally renowned names alongside top local talent. 

The new programme follows a successful year for The Stoller Hall. In 2023, over 40,000 people visited to enjoy family-friendly shows, music from around the world, film with live music, and even footballing legend Eric Cantona took to the stage. The Stoller Hall also hosted shows that were free to attend regularly and there will be more free ‘Lunchtime Concerts’ next year. 

Highlights for 2024 include:  

Manchester Harp Festival: Anneleen Laenarts, Saturday 20 January 

Belgian harpist Anneleen Lenaerts is one of the leading soloists of her instrument. As the finale performance of the first Manchester Harp Festival, she’ll be closing out two days of performances, workshops and more celebrating this remarkable instrument.

NYJO and Nikki Yeoh present: Speechmik X-Ploration, Tuesday 30 April 

Nikki Yeoh’s seminal multimedia work ‘Speechmik X-Ploration’ promotes a message of unity and plurality, which remains poignant today.

Manchester Camerata: Mozart, Made in Manchester, Friday 17 May 

This is the penultimate concert in the Camerata’s critically acclaimed Mozart, Made in Manchester series with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and our Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy. Continuing their exploration of Mozart’s youthful genius, they’ll perform Mitridate re di Ponto and La finta semplice alongside three of his early piano concertos. 

Fran Healey, Creative Commercial Director at The Stoller Hall, said: “We’re building on a successful year by bringing a diverse range of performers to Manchester in 2024. There really is something for everybody and for all ages. 

“Manchester has a rich musical heritage and we’re proud to be part of that today. The Stoller Hall has been specially engineered to provide the very best sound quality, so if you love music this is the place for you.”
