The Bridgewater Hall is an international concert venue that is available for hire for a wide range of events.

Auditorium

At the heart of the Bridgewater Hall lies the breath-taking Auditorium. Despite its size, the four-level tiered seating was designed in a way which brings everybody close together to create an intimate and comfortable space. Accommodating up to 1800 guests, the setting has hosted a variety of incredible events such as large-scale conferences, AGMs, graduations, charity events, plus incredible performances by distinguished ensembles such as the BBC Philharmonic and much more. The Auditorium can be hired as part of an exclusive Whole Facility rental, which includes all of our Front of House foyer spaces and smaller function rooms, as well as Back of House en-suite changing rooms, warm up rooms, and crew rooms.

Barbirolli Room

Impressive high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, excellent acoustics and modern bright décor combine to make this room a popular choice for all types of events up to 250. The layout is very flexible to compliment a range of different events, with a movable partition wall that can be put in place for smaller numbers. The Barbirolli Room can be hired as a package, which includes extensive use of our high quality technical facilities and professional technical assistance. To maximise the attendee experience, adjacent foyer spaces can be utilised in conjunction with the Barbirolli Room, serving as an easily accessible breakout area for registration, catering and networking.

Two smaller meeting rooms, the Charles Halle and the Green Room can accommodate up to 40 and 50 respectively, theatre style.

Circle Foyer

The Circle Foyer is a versatile space, offering endless event related opportunities. This bright, glass-fronted foyer has views across the city, and is a beautiful backdrop for receptions, dinners, exhibitions and networking events. With impressive views, it provides the perfect location for photography and filming.

Used in conjunction with the Barbirolli room, it provides a spacious registration and catering area adjacent to the main conference, and can also be used for workshops and breakout sessions.

Choir Circle Foyer

Located below the Circle foyer, Choir Circle is a more intimate foyer space which can be used alongside the Barbirolli room as a registration, catering, or exhibition for up to 80 delegates.

What Our Clients Say

I have used ‘Function Fixers’ now on many occasions and they are my go-to for literally any event I need help with organising. Heather is an absolute superstar who is always there to help and goes above and beyond to find me the perfect venue and make sure it is a smooth transition from start to finish.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful to have found the company…absolute life and time savers, and certainly ‘fixers’!!

When it came to helping me find a venue that met my requirements, Chen was among the best that I have used.

Function Fixers is my go to team for support with venue finding. All those of us that work in event organisation know how agile and quick footed you have to be to organise them effectively, as people, agenda, budgets, dates change so easily. This did not phase Theresa one bit...we sent email after email back and forth as my venue brief changed regularly, as did finding the right date. Theresa dealt with it with a level of patience I wish I had! And email conversations were always full of detail and fun. Theresa responded so quickly to my emails, always remaining positive that a venue would fit our needs and she was right. The handover to the venue was done promptly and we are in full swing of event organisation. Thank you Theresa, Heather and FF...we will definitely be back with future venue needs!
