MAPAS logoThe Arts Centre is the beating heart of MAPAS and a place to enjoy making Music and Performing Arts together under the guidance of our experienced and professional team of tutors.

The Arts Centre provides opportunities for children, young people and adults from all areas of the city to participate in a wide variety of bands, orchestras, choirs and theatre groups. Some groups welcome complete beginners, but most groups have entry requirements. Find out more about our groups.

Arts Centre members perform regularly in showcase concerts often performing in prestigious venues such as the Lowry and Bridgewater Hall.

Senior Arts Centre members are afforded the opportunity to perform abroad as part of concert tours with junior Arts Centre members attending residential weekends to work on exciting performance projects.

All new members are welcome to book onto a FREE Taster Session. After the trial session, it is then only £5 per month for children, or £7 per month for adults to continue attending. A full explanation of fees can be found on our Arts Centre Membership page.
