The Bridgewater Hall is Manchester’s international concert venue, built to give the best possible space for music. The Hall hosts over 300 performances a year including classical music, rock, pop, jazz, world music and much more.
The Hall is home to three resident orchestras: the Hallé, the BBC Philharmonic and Manchester Camerata. The Hall also programmes its own classical music season, the International Concert Series. The Hall works with a range of promoters and charity hirers on other programming.
The construction of The Bridgewater Hall was funded in partnership by Manchester City Council and the Central Manchester Development Corporation with assistance from the European Regional Development Fund.
The ongoing operation of the Hall is now the responsibility of an independent charitable trust, Manchester Concert Hall Limited. The Bridgewater Hall is managed by ASM Global. ASM Global is a trading name of a group of companies, including SMG Europe Holdings Limited.
At The Bridgewater Hall we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and want to ensure we are contributing to the reduction of carbon omissions where we can. To do this, we have an Environment Group, with members from all departments, who meet on a regular basis to discuss, monitor and implement progress in achieving a greener venue.
