There are several types of seating and the layout varies considerably depending on the event. If you require more information about the seating for a particular event, please phone Band on the Wall on 0161 834 1786 (weekdays between 10:00 – 17:00) or email

We do not offer a general seating reservation facility, but if a seat is an access requirement, please contact us in advance (ideally a minimum of one week) and we will arrange for you to have one.
 Alternatively, arrive early and ask to speak to the duty manager – they will help you access the venue prior to doors to find suitable seating. Even when an event is advertised as ‘standing only’, we can still provide seating.

We can allocate a specific area for wheelchair users if required, please contact ; we also give the option of going where you wish to view the stage. If you require assistance to find a viewing position, please ask a member of staff and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
