Help to encourage young artists at the start of their careers by sponsoring The Manchester Mid-day Concerts Society.

Sponsorship of The Manchester Mid-day Concerts Society gives businesses the opportunity to entertain clients to a unique experience in the welcoming ambience of The Bridgewater Hall.

A list of artists, dates and programmes for the forthcoming season is available in Feb/March each year - contact us to request a copy.  From then it is simply a matter of choosing a concert to support.

The Manchester Mid-day Concerts Society is recognised as one of the best attended lunchtime concert series in the country.

Cost of Sponsorship

Sponsoring a Manchester Mid-day Concert will cost as little as £1,000. In return sponsors will receive 50 complimentary tickets (additional tickets available at the concessionary rate), publicity on concert day, in the concert programme, in our annual brochure, and in the Bridgewater Hall's own publicity literature. You may also arrange to have your company logo printed on your ticket allocation.

Corporate Entertaining at the Bridgewater Hall

Sponsors may entertain their guests in style – in the Barbirolli Room seating 50 – 150, in the Charles Hallé Room seating up to 40 or on The Choir Circle concourse which is also available for pre-concert drinks.  A range of menus from canapés to banquets together with a comprehensive wine list is available.

Catering and ticketing arrangements can be made directly with the Bridgewater Hall's Events Manager, for corporate entertaining, and with the box office manager for ticket allocation.  Tel: 0161 950 0000.

The Artists

Artists include distinguished international musicians as well as the brightest stars of a young, up and coming generation of musicians rigorously selected each year by our Director of Concerts, with annual auditions regularly producing further new and exciting talent.  Each season usually features up to eight outstanding candidates who have impressed our auditioning panel.  Due to The Manchester Mid-day's reputation for excellence within the profession, a recital date with this prestigious series has proved to be an invaluable component in a young artist's CV.
