If a favourite Act or event is being held at this venue - don't hesitate not really a bad seat in the house and you feel much more up close and personal than anything hosted at the larger arenas

I have lost count of the amount of times I have been here. When you book their reasonably priced concerts they dont charge ridiculous booking costs either

This is an amazing concert hall. The only downside is that drinks are really overpriced. The hall is home to the Manchester Halle orchestra. The christmas concert and the space spectacular was my fav. Highly recommend seeing both

I’ve been coming here to the Bridgewater Hall since it was opened, and a couple of local orchestras (the brilliant BBC Philharmonic in particular) moved here from the Free Trade Hall. It’s definitely the concert venue of choice if you are serious about music as the acoustics are amazing. I also like their policies, for example, you don’t have people... More

Went to see ABC here and the location of the hall itself is very central. Inside, the venue is top notch with comfy seats and great acoustics. I was in Block C Row B and the view of the stage was fantastic.

this is a terrific place with the excellent acoustics which you would expect from a modern concert hall. The Russian state ballet of Siberia are a splendid company and the performance of the Nutcracker was memorable. Wonderful orchestra helped make it an enjoyable experience. A slight moan would be for a decent coffee but we forgive you as everything else... More

I have been to the Bridgewater a few times now and have NEVER been disappointed.....the staff were very nice and helpful and the building itself is lovely....it's an ideal venue for concerts, not to big so you feel miles away from stage. Looking forward to the next one!!!
