Beloved by locals, not-for-profit venue Band On The Wall brings the best local and international musical talent onto a rather legendary Mancunian stage.
Welcoming practically any genre of music, the venue continues to live up to its historical status as one of the oldest venues in the city. It's also a popular location for club nights with events such as Mr Scruff's Keep it Unreal and Craig Charles Funk 'n Soul Club taking place on a regular basis.
Run by charity Inner City Music, the venue also provides various music education courses throughout the year as well as at local schools. You can even buy a membership card to support the running of the venue, with plenty of freebies, VIP events and discounts available.
There's also an adjoining bar and cafe; a converted Grade II listed former cinema called The Picturehouse, serving plenty of drinks in the evening. Opening hours vary depending on each event so check out our listings for details. [Charlotte Davies]
