Sounds of Nature

Our live music programme continues to draw inspiration from the natural world with Sounds of Nature – a creative, musical response to tackling global warming that runs throughout 2022.

We’ve got something for all ages and tastes. In June there’s an Alpine-themed programme from Orchestra For The Earth, transporting you to the world of dizzying mountains, lush valleys and turquoise lakes. And our new family programme will explore our connections to nature with a series of workshops and a performance where children can decide which of the elements is the greatest, in a special musical battle.

You can about our latest events in our Spring / Summer events guide here.

But, the performances are only half of the story.

As a venue, we’re actively fighting climate change and reducing our carbon footprint. We’re programming the best musical talent within the region, stocking the bar with sustainable products from local suppliers (such as the delicious Three Rivers Gin produced half a mile away) and reducing our energy consumption, to make us one of the UK’s most nature friendly music venues.

We’re also contributing to conservation and nature preservation across Greater Manchester. For every ticket purchased for events in our Sounds of Nature programme, we’ll donate at least £1 to City of Trees to help deliver a green recovery plan planting a trees and restoring woodlands for the people and wildlife of Greater Manchester. Learn more about sustainability at The Stoller Hall.
