Manchester is justifiably very proud to have built a venue that can show off international artists at there best - the acoustics are the top of the range. The central location is ideally placed to offer access easy access form around the north west.

If you drive use the NCP car park opposite. At the box office in the hall get your car park ticket stamped and the charge last week was £5.00
