Band on the Wall

Band on the Wall, one of Manchester's most vibrant live music venues, has a long history dating back to its days as a local brew pub in the mid-19th century. Whilst its current name has only been used since the 1930s, it was first known as the George and Dragon. The pub prospered with the Industrial Revolution, and it became a popular venue where street performers and musicians entertained customers for tips. Even World War II air raids couldn't dampen the vitality of Band on the Wall, and the club still draws the best musicians from around the globe.
