The Hallé’s Education Programme exists to create a wider enjoyment and understanding of music in all sectors of the community, especially those who do not traditionally come to the concert hall, by providing a range of unique opportunities to participate in music and other creative art forms.

The focus of the award-winning programme is mainly on Greater Manchester but we also work in the other areas of the North West and beyond where the Hallé performs regularly, such as Nottingham and Sheffield, and in adjacent regions to Greater Manchester, such as Cheshire. It reaches over 71,000 participants a year principally by placing Hallé musicians in the community, in schools, youth clubs, community centres and young offenders organisations.

We’re also an Arts Award Supporter.
