An exciting and diverse programme of events across drama, literature and music awaits every kind of audience, with tickets now on sale.

To mark the 70th birthday of John Casken, one of the UK’s best-loved living composers, his music will be featured in the musical programme for the new season.

The Manchester University Music Society (MUMS) returns with a variety of concerts including a lunchtime performance as part of New Music Manchester Festival – a special edition featuring newly created compositions by students at the University of Manchester. This concert is organised under the umbrella of the New Music Manchester Festival under the theme ‘Displacement’ and as part of a long-standing collaboration with the RNCM.

The Walter Carroll Lunchtime Concerts will return to Thursday lunchtimes, which take place at 1.10pm and are free to attend. This year the Martin Harris Centre promises a fantastic line-up of unique performers including flautist, Noemi Gyori and soprano, Gweneth Ann Rand.

In addition, chamber music at its most exhilarating and intimate will be performed by the Quatuor Danel for their 15th season at the University for what promises to be a magnificent and memorable musical experience.

The Martin Harris Centre will be hosting a full programme of Literature Live events in partnership with Manchester Literature Festival, Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester. The autumn programme includes some of the most accomplished writers around today in venues across the city, including Jeanette Winterson, David Nicholls, Jonathan Safran Foer, Paul Muldoon, Alice Oswald and Hanif Kureishi.

Tickets for the autumn 2019 season are now on sale and can be purchased online via Quaytickets, in person or by calling the Martin Harris Centre Box Office (during opening times 12.30-2.30pm).
