The Hallé

Housed within the original part of the Free Trade Hall, The Hallé is our largest function room capable of hosting events for up to 500 people. The space takes its name from the famous Hallé Orchestra, which used to perform in the Free Trade Hall. Today, its striking black and white styling with mirrors and natural light ensures it remains the perfect venue for events and celebrations of all kinds.
