Chetham’s School of Music
Chetham’s is one of the world’s most celebrated schools of music. In 2012, its facilities were transformed with the opening of the New School Building, a superb space for learning with acoustically designed practice and performance rooms, and bright new spaces for academic study. And with the opening of The Stoller Hall in 2017, the school now has a wonderful performance venue, forging links between professional and student musicians.
Founded in 1847, the Cathedral continues to play a significant role in the regeneration of the Medieval Quarter. Manchester City Council and the Medieval Quarter Group, including Chetham’s Library, have developed the site as a vibrant and welcoming destination, with more additions to come.
A sporting city
Manchester also leads the field in sport – football in particular – where the city’s two most famous teams have propelled Manchester onto the global stage. The city is well known for successfully hosting major international events across a diverse range of sports.
