The Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester

It's not just about the learning. Head down for world-class gigs, readings, theatre and book launches

Principally a place in which to study and learn music, the Royal Northern College Of Music is a world-class conservatoire for over 700 students. However its selection of various-sized performance spaces makes it a public venue too, with regular concerts, book readings and events taking place throughout the year.

It's an eclectic mix, with choice recent servings including early John Grant, Canadian singer Jane Siberry, the fado siren Marizza, a Brett Easton Ellis novel launch, 'Glamorama' and amateur choir competitions. Goldfrapp even did a masterclass for students there as part of their performance with Manchester International Festival in 2013.

The programme's wide spectrum serves both its own students and the larger public well, making RNCM a great place to experiment and learn, no matter if your interests lie in academics or entertainment.
