New live Jazz at The Stoller Hall

Manchester’s new home for international jazz

“The Hermeto Pascoal show was buzzing” – Audience Member

Over the last 12 months we’re proud to have played host to some brilliant jazz musicians including Soweto Kinch and Hermeto Pascoal. Incredible live jazz music continues throughout 2022 and beyond as we welcome an eclectic range of jazz acts from around the world including the Isfar Sarabski Quartet, James Taylor Quartet, Evelyn Glennie, Chetham’s Big Band and many more. Plus the return of Down for the Count Orchestra and Syd Lawrence for a Christmas jazz spectacular.

After the success of our 2021 collaboration we’re also teaming up again with our friends at NQ Jazz to bring you some of the biggest names in jazz alongside emerging talent.

As a relative newcomer to the live jazz venue scene in Manchester, we’re continuing to build our reputation to audiences far and wide. So if you love live jazz please do share with your friends and family and help us to spread the word about the amazing music available here in the heart of Manchester.
