The impressive structure cost over £40 million to build. Clever building techniques were utilised to ensure it remains acoustically insulated from the noise of the nearby Metrolink and train lines. The entire building actually floats above the ground on around 300 giant steel springs. It was the first concert hall constructed using this method.

The venue has a seating capacity of 2,341. A seating plan is available on the official website (see information box at the end of this page).

Facilities include a restaurant, café bar, and gift shop. Guided tours are available.

Barbirolli Square fronts the entrance to the building. It is named after Sir John Barbirolli, former conductor of the Halle. The plaza is home to the Ishinki Touchstone, an 18-tonne polished stone sculpture by Kan Yasuda.

Location

The hall is situated on Lower Mosley Street in the Petersfield area of Manchester city centre (postcode M2 3WS). It is directly across the road from Manchester Central.
