About The Store

Manchester was once described by social commentator Brian Redhead as “…where the modern world was born”, and is one of the UK’s major centres of cultural activity. Home to two highly regarded symphony orchestras (the Halle and the BBC Philharmonic), Manchester is a thriving centre for classical music.

However, it was the contemporary music scene that truly put Manchester on the musical map. Whilst the Smiths and Joy Division made the 1980s their own, the city stole headlines again in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s with the Madchester scene. The list of Manchester musical achievements goes on and on.
