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.
