Join the St. John’s Collective for a concert and social event in aid of Big Change

Spinningfields developer Allied London and Manchester Camerata have announced the first public performance and social event for the St. John’s Collective, to take place at the Old Granada Studios on Thursday 26th April. The performance will raise money for Big Change, a charity working to make it easier for people who are homeless to get the help they need.

Led by Allied London’s Jonathan Raine and mentored by musicians from Manchester Camerata, St John’s Collective has been meeting regularly at Old Granada Studios over the past four months to work on a series of new pieces by emerging young composers. All of the music has been specially written for the Collective and is inspired by the city, its buildings and its people in a very unique way.

This informal event promises to be a special celebration of Manchester’s creativity and the future of St. John’s as a new neighbourhood of enterprise and culture.

The event is free, but registration is required with a suggested donation of £10 per person.


All proceeds will go directly to Big Change as part of Allied London’s commitment to tackle homelessness in Manchester.

The performance will be approx. 60 minutes long. This is a standing event. Limited priority seating will be available for people who have difficulty standing for this duration of time.
