The majority of our work takes place with schools from across Greater Manchester. Whether we’re welcoming you to the Hall for a one-off visit or a longer term project, we believe in giving all children the opportunity to experience music and creativity from an early age.


Teachers planning work around music or acoustics may find some useful links in our list of music resources.

Guided Tours

Our guided tours are an opportunity for your students to find out some fun facts about our amazing building and learn about how a major concert venue operates. Now that Bridgewater Hall has re-opened, we hope to restart the guided tours programme very soon. To register your interest for a tour for your school group please email


Every season we plan several longer term projects for schools who are interested in becoming more deeply involved in music development. Professional leaders and musicians will help children explore themes connected to the Hall’s programme, with projects often culminating in a public performance of students’ own work in our main Auditorium.

Live Music Now Schools Concerts

Live Music Now welcome between 200 and 300 pupils a year to The Bridgewater Hall from specialist schools across Greater Manchester.
