About this space

Chetham’s Baronial Hall is one of the best preserved fifteenth-century spaces of its kind.

The Baronial Hall is used regularly as a performance venue by Chetham’s School of Music, and provides an intimate and atmospheric setting for smaller-scale concerts which may be ticketed through The Stoller Hall.

The Baronial Hall may also be used as the centre of a memorable conference, with breakout spaces clustered about this central point; or provides a stunning space for dining, meetings, parties or for very special weddings.

This is a flexible space which can add an extra element of magic to any event, with the optional addition of Library and medieval building tours to entertain guests during breaks and networking.

Rules of the space

As we are also a boarding school (Chethams Shool of Music), we would only host loud music or late events out of term times.


Chetham’s is a unique and atmospheric location, ideal for events from seminars and meetings private dinners and concerts.

Dating back to 1421, Chetham’s medieval buildings were built as a college for the priests of St Mary’s Parish Church, now Manchester Cathedral. It is the most complete late-medieval residential complex to survive in the north west of England.
