Fun for families

We’re delighted to be programming regular activities for little ones and their grown-ups here at The Stoller Hall.

We welcome families of all shapes and sizes and our modern building has space to relax and meet friends, as well as the latest family friendly facilities.

If you’re planning a visit then find out more about our family friendly venue below.

FACILITIES FOR FAMILIES

Baby change facilities are available and we are a breastfeeding friendly venue (or we have private spaces if preferred). Large, mixed gender toilet cubicles are also available on Atrium level, which may be useful for family groups.

Buggies and prams can be stored securely just outside the performance in the Atrium or Stalls Alcove. Our helpful stewards can show you where best to park.

FOOD AND DRINK

The Oglesby Atrium Bar offers an informal space to enjoy a drink before our workshops and performances and during the interval.

We offer a wide variety of teas, coffees and bar snacks including local brands like Cheshire Farm Ice Cream. As part of our sustainability commitments, we’re also actively removing single use plastics from our bar and swapping for recyclable alternatives.

HOW TO FIND US

Find us directly opposite Manchester Victoria Station, within easy reach of all main train, bus, tram and road links. Visitor access is via Hunt’s Bank, with the main entrance directly facing Manchester Arena.
