LIVE EVENTS AND FUNCTIONS
New Century Hall is one of Manchester’s hidden gems and is plays a big part in its musical heritage. In the 60s Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Lee Lewis rocked the stage as part of the army of US exports finding fame in the UK. Home grown talent such as The Hollies, The Kinks, Herman’s Hermits and Procol Harum all crafted their acts playing here before going on to worldwide fame.
In the 80s the hall was a venue for the legendary all-night Acid House parties of the MADchester era. The likes of 808 state and A Guy Called Gerald swapped guitars for electronic instruments and channeled the spirit of Chicago House music into Manchester’s emerging underground scene.
Today the hall has been fully restored with its vintage wood wall panelling, sprung dance floor and psychedelic illuminated ceiling fully intact. Now equipped with a fully stocked bar, state of the art sound and stage production equipment, the venue will play host to an eclectic range of events throughout the year. The venue is also available for private hire events with catering options available in-house from our independent food traders based in the kitchens.
