Halle St. Peter’s

This concert venue sits in the heart of Ancoats and provides rehearsal and recording space for the Hallé.

Dating back to 1858, Hallé St. Peter's has a rich and varied history. During the Industrial Revolution Ancoats was transformed from a small collection of houses and fields to an area dominated by the cotton factories which lead to Manchester becoming one of the most important industrial districts in the world.

Founded in 1858, the Hallé, Manchester's symphony orchestra, ranks among the UK's top symphonic ensembles, with a distinguished history of acclaimed performances in this country and around the world. 

By the time St. Peter's was built in 1859, Ancoats had become a bustling and overcrowded industrial suburb with a population of more than 50,000. This Grade II listed church is also the principal rehearsal and recording venue for the Hallé Orchestra, Choir and other Hallé Ensembles.
