New live jazz programme

Our new partnership with NQ Jazz and The Yard will bring some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians to Manchester for a series of socially distanced lunchtime concerts and masterclasses, evening concerts and live broadcasts. Through a mix of live in-venue performances and high-quality online streams and performance archive, the programme will reach a global audience.

Postponed from their original launch date in 2020, the concerts will now go ahead with social distancing measures in places and will be the first in-person events to take place at The Stoller Hall, since we closed in March 2020.

Amongst the artists involved are multiple MOBO award-winning saxophonist and composer Soweto Kinch, seminal vocalist Norma Winstone alongside long-term collaborators Stan Sulzmann and Nikki Iles, plus Jazz FM Instrumentalist of the Year 2016, Mark Lockheart — the renowned saxophonist and bandleader who rose to prominence with the influential big band Loose Tubes.
