In a world full of noise, Manchester Collective makes a case for music.

We create unforgettable human experiences. Our aim is to challenge and inspire our audiences through the medium of live performance - we passionately believe in the power of music to move us and to excite us.

It doesn't matter to us if you're a seasoned concert-goer, or if it's your first time. We don't care if you don't know your Beethoven from your Brahms, or your Biber from your Bieber.

The only thing we will ask of you at our concerts is that you listen. Really listen. 

And in return, we will create something extraordinary.
