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.
