Enjoy live music in the birthplace of Oasis and the Stone Roses

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Watch an intimate gig at Band on the Wall, or head to Manchester Arena for the ultimate music experience.

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. Head to Manchester Academy or The Ritz to see some of the best up and coming bands in truly iconic settings.

Head over to Manchester Arena where local music heroes including Oasis, Happy Mondays, and Take That have grace its stage. Manchester Arena has also played host to the likes of The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.

For something a little bit different, Albert Hall in the City Centre is a Grade II listed Wesleyan chapel which was closed and hidden for over 40 years. However, since 2013, the grand and ornate chapel has been restored into a stunning purpose built music hall and is one of the most atmospheric music and events venues in the UK.
