I used to work close to the Bridgewater Hall and would tend to forget about the fab cafe tucked away in there! Delicious food, varied menu of solid lunchtime staples! Nice environment to have a catch up.

The Katie Melua concert we attended last night was wonderful. I'm a wheelchair user so we were right at the front and it felt really intimate. She's a great performer and she'd brought a choir from her native Georgia. However when I booked my wheelchair space earlier this year I didn't ask about parking and the NCP across the road... More

I was thrilled to receive the tickets for the Halle Orchestra which I had won through a competition and accompanied my Mother on the 1st December 2016 to the Bridgewater Hall which is a stunning building all the more so as it was decorated for Christmas. This was the first time I had experienced a classical concert of which I... More

Visited with family to see concert. We sat in the front row of the circle - best seats ever. More refreshments e.g. Tea & coffee need to be available for visitors who attend concerts.

Visited here for a Halle concert the programme being Wagner, Beethoven & Sibelius.The hall is a modern construction with plenty of glass, it feels light and airy, even on a cold and dark winters night. Our seats were in the gallery, and had a great view, they were comfy with a decent amount of leg room. I do think that... More
