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 breastfeeding is welcome in all public areas (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.

Please note that buggies and prams must be stored in the secure area outside the auditorium, in the Atrium or Stalls Alcove. Stewards will guide you to this space when you arrive.

FOOD AND DRINK

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

Our well-stocked bar offers a wide variety of teas, coffees and bar snacks including local brands like Cheshire Farm Ice Cream. As part of our sustainability objectives, we’re also actively removing single use plastics from our bar and swapping for recyclable alternatives. Unfortunately drinks cannot be taken into the auditorium.

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.
