Support Us

The Met exists to bring creativity and culture to our community. We are a music venue, a recording studio, a home of several performing arts workshops and independent artists, and most importantly, a charity. We believe in the power of creativity to uplift, inspire and include, and improve the wellbeing of many lives. We need your help to bring culture to life amongst our communities, and ensure our work can reach those who need it most.  

Covid-19 has hit us hard. 60% of our annual revenue comes from events and ticket sales, meaning the majority of our cashflow has disappeared while we continue to postpone or cancel our events. We use this income to reinvest in our community, and we need your help to keep culture alive in North Manchester. 

How can you help us? 

  • Keep buying ticketsWe’re getting closer to the day when we can welcome you all back with open arms. Buying tickets is vital in ensuring our cashflow and ability to make sure we can hang on until then.
  • Gift vouchersOnline shopping for birthdays is tricky, right? Why not give the gift of a brilliant night out to look forward to in the new year, and support the arts at the same time. 
  • MembershipMembership matters. Your regular support means we can dream bigger, and deliver sooner. Many of our projects are funded by the money generated by memberships, so if you want to make a lasting impact on our work, this is the way to do it. 
  • Donate – Donations have never had more of an impact on our ability to support our community. With your help, since the start of lockdown we have partnered with an artist support network, converted our workshop classes online to keep creativity alive in our community, and brought culture to over 14 million people through our partnership with United We Stream. Together, we can make sure this is just the beginning. 

If you’ve already got tickets for an event that is cancelled or rescheduled then we’ll be getting in touch with you soon.

Corporate Membership

We are grateful to our corporate sponsors for their support. Their contribution to The Met is absolutely vital. They help us make our work accessible, and make a difference to the lives of local people.


As we all do our bit to help keep our communities safe and healthy, The Met has to close its doors (temporarily) to the public. This goes against everything we aim to be; inclusive, welcoming and packed with music, creativity and happy people. Which means we’re looking ahead to when we can re-open, and what we can do in the meantime to keep reaching people. 


We’re proud to have patrons who value our work and lend us their influence. Our patrons are prominent in the arts and business, they speak for us and help us to spread the word about the great work we do.
