Calm your mind and experience live music in a new, softly glowing, light with these sensational concerts by Candlelight. Invite everyone to experience some of the best and most beloved music to have graced our ears, pumped from our speakers and floated from our windows over the years. Taking place in some of Manchester’s most magical locations, you won’t want to miss the chance to experience these Candlelight concerts.
Taking place at various locations in Manchester, these spectacular shows will illuminate the finest venues, specifically chosen for their beauty, history, or fame – or all three. In 2021 & 2022, Candlelight concerts took place in the likes of Manchester Cathedral, Stoller Hall, and even under the wings of a Concorde plane at Manchester Airport. Over the course of the remaining year shows will continue to happen at Manchester Cathedral and Stoller Hall as well as at new venues such as the Contact Theatre, Halle St Peter’s, and Edgar Wood.
You can be sure there will be something to suit your taste closing out this year, with an exciting variety of concerts that whisk you away with a single note. If you’re in that spooky kind of mood you’re covered with a special Candlelight Halloween: A Haunted Evening of Classical Compositions performance. If the classical is more your speed there will be concerts celebrating the work of Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky – and the Tchaikovsky shows even come with the bonus of ballet performances alongside the music.
If however you’re after something a bit more contemporary don’t worry you haven’t been left out. Beyhive get ready as there is an Irreplaceable night ahead of you with a tribute concert to the one and only Queen B. If you’re more of a raver we’ve got a night celebrating 80s & 90s Dance Anthems brought by the incredible Kaleidoscope Orchestra. There’s also tribute performances for the late great Amy Winehouse as well as Coldplay before the close of the year.
Candlelight is an experience unlike any other, and you won’t want to miss out. Take a look below to see some of the brilliant concerts that will be coming to the city and grab a ticket now as they are known to disappear faster than a gust of wind extinguishes a candle flame. Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
