The People’s Concert at Albert Hall

The People’s Concert at Albert Hall, City Centre, 11 November 2017, from £20.00 - Book now

To mark its 100th year as a music venue, Manchester’s Albert Hall will host a ‘People’s Concert’, paying homage to a concert held exactly 100 years prior. In 1917 the former Wesleyan chapel was converted into a concert hall – with The Famous Range Concert Company headlining alongside classical singers and an orchestra, plus ‘humorous entertainer’ Mr Arthur Newton.

Fast forward a century and the line-up for this People’s Concert will be headlined by Brighton’s festival favourites British Sea Power, plus Boxed In – aka former Manchester resident Oli Bayston – as well as local heroes Dutch Uncles and Sunderland’s Field Music.

It’s a fun bill of crowd-pleasing bands – befitting of one of the city’s most popular venues.
