More events may be listed on the official O2 Apollo Manchester website (see the information section at the end of this page).
The Apollo has a capacity of 2693 for all-seated events and 3500 for standing/seated events (seats are removed from the stalls but remain in the front and rear circles). Seating plans are available on the official website.
The theatre is much smaller than the Manchester Arena but many prefer its more intimate atmosphere.
Tickets & Box Office
The theatre box office is open on event days from 5 pm until the main act takes the stage.
02 customers can purchase tickets up to 48 hours in advance of them going on sale. They can also take advantage of the 02 Priority Queue to gain faster access and enjoy the surroundings of the 02 Priority Lounge.
Location, Directions & Parking
The Apollo is situated on Stockport Road in the Ardwick area of Manchester.
Visitors travelling by car and using satellite navigation systems should use the postcode M12 6AP to find it. There are two supervised car parks near the Apollo. The main car park is at the rear of the building on Apsley Grove. The smaller car park on Hyde Road offers spaces for disabled patrons. The parking charge at the time of writing (November 2017) is £7.
Manchester Piccadilly is the nearest mainline train station and is around ¾ mile from the theatre (Ardwick is closer but has few services). To get there from Piccadilly simply exit the station and head south along the A6. Walking should take around 15 minutes.
The doors usually open at 7 pm. Smoking is not permitted inside the venue but there’s usually a smoking area set up outside the entrance. Banners, selfie sticks, and professional cameras are not permitted. Small, non-professional cameras are permitted by most artists and their promoters.
