About this room

The Association Room originally housed the kitchens of Chetham’s Hospital School and retains fascinating features from its historical role.

The old kitchens were converted as recently as 1969 when Chetham’s was transformed into a Music School. An impressive double-storey space, it is ideal for seminars, meetings or dining, with an adjacent kitchen ensuring that fresh, hot food and refreshments can be provided to guests throughout the day.

The Association Room is a flexible, fascinating space full of historical interest, perfect as a venue in its own right or as a breakout from larger gatherings in the Baronial Hall.

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.
