If you enjoy live classical music, each year we go to the nine Thursday evening “Opus One” series of concerts, given by the superb Hallé orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. We travel to and from the hall in comfort by private coach, picking up and setting down in Mellor, Marple Bridge, Marple and Rose Hill.
