The Bridgewater Hall

Classical, rock, pop, jazz, world music and more, with some performances by the resident orchestras. The Bridgewater Hall offers unique and exciting spaces for conferences and events in Manchester city centre.

The Bridgewater Hall provides a unique and exciting environment for conferences and events, with space to accommodate up to 1800 delegates. With superb event facilities and in-house teams boasting a wealth of expertise in running events on all scales, all the support you need is available in-house, and the Conference and Events team will work with you from initial enquiry until event completion to ensure your ideas and inspiration come to life in this special space.

The venue is a great space for exhibitions with a twist, with glass foyer spaces overlooking Manchester city centre. Our function rooms and foyer areas can be combined to provide more space for exhibitors for large exhibitions, or can enable a conference to run alongside a smaller exhibition. The Conferences & Events team will advise you on the best way to utilise the spaces and get the most out of your exhibition.

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 the Hallé orchestra, and also hosts the BBC Philharmonic and Manchester Camerata regularly. 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 company, 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.
