A concert at the Martin Harris Centre
Martin Harris Centre

The Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama hosts concerts, theatre, and literature events at the heart of The University of Manchester. It incorporates two major performance spaces; the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall and the John Thaw Studio Theatre, as well as an electro-acoustic composition studio based in the Electroacoustic Building adjacent to the Centre.

The Cosmo Rodewald has an acoustically designed auditorium that seats an audience of  350, with a spacious stage area large enough to accommodate a full symphony orchestra. The John Thaw Studio Theatre seats approximately 100 and is a flexible space, mainly used for dramatic productions. As the Martin Harris Centre has a close relationship with The University of Manchester, both theatres are used frequently by the student societies, in particular the Music and Drama societies, and the Students’ Union.
