Chetham’s Lunchtime Concerts

Take a lunch break and enjoy free weekday afternoon recitals by some of the UK’s most exciting young musicians!

Returning to Manchester’s cultural calendar for autumn-winter 2021, for the first time since before the pandemic, the concerts offer a glimpse into the musical talent at Chetham’s, the UK’s leading music school.

We’ll update this page with the upcoming programmes for each concert. Simply choose your favourite and book your free ticket for the concert of your choice via the event listings at the bottom of this page.

*These remarkable performers are still developing their craft, so we hope you’ll understand if very occasionally we change the programme at short notice. Thank you for supporting young musicians.
