After a hugely successful first year, we’re excited to announce that the Manchester Guitar Festival will return in 2023.
The second Manchester Guitar Festival will take place on 19-21 May 2023 with three days packed full of concerts, workshops and masterclasses with some of the finest guitar stars. There will be a headline performance each day in The Stoller Hall, as well as a variety of other performances in The Stoller Hall, The Carole Nash Hall and pop-up performances in The Atrium.
Workshops will include a fingerstyle masterclass from John Gomm, a flamenco workshop with Miguel Pérez, a jazz masterclass from Jim Faulkner and Stuart McCallum teaching a pedals masterclass for electric guitar. John Gomm and Jim Faulkner will also be performing during the festival, alongside Richard Durrant, Alexandra Whittingham and more to be announced. We will also be running a series of participatory activities for young people and adults across our site – suitable for everyone from early years upwards.
There will even be an opportunity for budding young guitarists to try out the world of Chetham’s as part of our Chetham’s Guitar Academy Day which will run alongside the 2023 Festival.
There is definitely something for everyone to watch, learn and participate in.
