The Ritz was built in 1928 and used as a dance hall for many years, notably famous for its sprung dance floor. The venue was taken over by HMV in 2011 and given a £2 million refurbishment returning it to the historic grandeur of its 1920s origins, whilst updating the venue with state-of-the-art soundproofing and sophisticated lighting and sound systems. AMG acquired and re-branded the venue as the O2 Ritz Manchester in 2015 and is now one of the city’s most iconic venues and host to live musicians, performers and club nights.

The O2 Ritz Manchester is a versatile multi use events space available for everything from live music events, filming, weddings, parties, private dinners and receptions, and can also be fully seated suitable for awards ceremonies, exhibitions, product launches and corporate conferences guaranteed to impress any client. With onsite catering facilities, staging, AV/Technical equipment and event management support we can offer a unique experience to suit any event.
