The much-loved Manchester Mid-day Concerts roll on through the icy months of winter, bringing musical warmth to the stunning Bridgewater Hall. The concerts, which take place at the slightly unexpected time of 1.10pm, are an incredible opportunity to visit one of the finest concert halls in Europe for an affordable price: specially-designed to allow the ideal amount of cubic space per audience member. The Bridgewater Hall cost £46m to build – constructed like a giant sculpture, it weighs around 22,000 tons and, incredibly, floats on nearly 300 earthquake bearings, which mute external noise. It’s also one of Manchester’s most elegant settings in which to listen to music – all of which are excellent reasons to book your tickets to one of the following events.
Fri 15 Nov - Wed 18 Dec, The Bridgewater Hall, Lower Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3WS, Tel: 0161 907 9000
