Cheadle & Gatley

Lunchtime Concerts for free

The aim of this group is to attend concerts at various venues in Manchester which will reflect different styles and periods of music performed by a variety of instruments and ensembles. Regular venues include the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester University and Chetham’s School of Music.

When possible, there is a short preparation before the concert to enhance our appreciation.

In June and July when the college and the university are busy with exams, The Little Bite Concerts at the Bridgewater Hall fill the gap with some most unusual music. How lucky we are in Manchester to have such a variety of lunch-time concerts!

Travel is by shared cars, tram, bus or train from Gatley.
