Hallé St Peter’s Campaign

The Oglesby Centre – Capital Campaign

The Hallé are delighted to announce a fundraising appeal to build a much needed extension on to Hallé St Peter’s, in Ancoats. The Hallé have already received a significant donation from the Oglesby Charitable Trust towards the completion of this project and in recognition of their support the new facility will be called The Oglesby Centre.

“We have long held a dream that, in addition to our wonderful concert venue, The Bridgewater Hall, the Hallé would, during my time as Music Director, build a world-class centre for our rehearsal and recordings, a place where all of our ensembles; youth orchestras choir, youth and children’s choirs, could make their home, and where our educational and community programme could flourish.“We are now very close to realising that dream and I am asking for your help in securing it.

“As you probably know St Peter’s, Ancoats has been restored to provide the wonderful hall in which we now rehearse. However, we have always planned to put a new building on the adjoining site, which will deliver much needed supporting facilities and a range of new spaces, so that the whole Hallé St Peter’s project will provide for all of our needs in Manchester outside the Bridgewater.”

The Oglesby Charitable Trust have also established a significant pledge to encourage other donations and sponsorship. The pledge provides matched funding for all donations made to the campaign at whatever level, and there is a separate challenge for Businesses.
