Claire Martin delivered the Ella songs brilliantly and the band were fantastic. The Hall is a fantastic venue with superb acoustics. Staff were superb, not least the barman in the Corporate bar who was very professional and entertaining.

The home of the Halle Orchestra - not limited to classical music. Plenty of rock, blues and occasional easy listening is also played here. Food and drinks available. The Briton Protection is an excellent pub round the corner.

There didn't appear to be any empty seats in the Bridgewater Hall on a hot and humid Wednesday evening in Manchester. 15 minutes of instrumental jazz/ swing classics were performed by a very slick quartet (grand piano, guitar, double bass and drums), at around 8.15pm...More

If you drive use the NCP car park opposite. At the box office in the hall get your car park ticket stamped and the charge last week was £5.00
