About Chetham’s 

Chetham’s is a unique site in the centre of Manchester, combining the country’s largest specialist music school with an historic Library and a world-class concert hall. The organisation is approaching a key moment in its communications journey, when these three discrete public faces will be drawn together into one communications and development strategy, whilst maintaining their individual character, programming and identity. 

Chetham’s School of Music offers an unparalleled music and academic education to over 300 of the finest young musicians from the UK and across the world,  

Chetham’s Library is the oldest public library in the English speaking world, based in buildings dating to 1421 – the oldest surviving site in Manchester – and still open to readers and visitors, with a growing events programme celebrating the collections and historic connections with Marx, Engels and other notable visitors. 

The Stoller Hall is an intimate and impressive venue for live music and performance, opened in 2017 to provide an outstanding space for concerts by both the students of the school, and an exceptional programme of chamber, folk and contemporary performers.
