Enjoy live music at Band on the Wall

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Watch an intimate gig at this iconic Manchester venue which has been restored to its former glory, regularly hosting everything from reggae to jazz.


Enjoy a night out in true Mancunian style at Band on the Wall in Manchester’s bohemian Northern Quarter. Listen to some great music, enjoy a drink and dance with lots of the like-minded music-loving people.

Band on the Wall, previously the George and Dragon pub, has been part of the history of Manchester for more than 200 years and has been a music venue since the 1930s.

Take the opportunity to indulge in some tasty pre-gig grub and drinks at The Picturehouse located next door in a Grade II listed building that was a cinema in the early 1900s. Also make sure you check out the tables in the venue which are made from the former dance floor.
