Situated on an arm of the Bridgewater Canal, the world-class
Â£42-million concert venue Bridgewater Hall holds over 250
performances a year and is home to one of Britain's longest-running
orchestras, the HallÃ© Orchestra. This architecturally striking
building can house just under 2,500 audience members and the main
auditorium is centred around a remarkable 5,500-pipe organ. The
Hall plays host not only to classical music, but has also seen a
range of popular music artists such as the legendary James Brown,
indie artist Badly Drawn Boy and guitarist John Williams.
Bridgewater Hall is also home to the award-winning Charles HallÃ©
restaurant, as well as the Stalls CafÃ© Bar.
