Trof in the Northern Quarter

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Trof Northern Quarter opened in 2007 (building on the well-known Trof brand, which began in Fallowfield)

5-8 Thomas St Northern Quarter
Manchester, M4 1EG

There’s also an open mic night here every Sunday – arrive as early as possible to get a slot! Sign up begins at 8pm, with the first act on at 8.30pm.

It’s worth checking out the: Trof Northern Quarter Open Mic Facebook.

Back in 2007, it was briefly home to my Songs for the Bath Tub series of acoustic nights on the first Tuesday of every month.

Songs for the Bath Tub in the Northern Quarter

Monday, March 5th, 2007

We’ve got a brand new night – at the brand new Trof 2 in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The first event is on Tuesday 6th March – and we’ve picked some of the best performers from other Songs for the Bath Tubs to come and play…

Manchester Acoustic Music Nights

Monday, November 6th, 2006

Don’t forget we run three acoustic nights each month — Fuel Cafe Bar (Withington) on 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, then Trof (Fallowfield) every 3rd Wednesday… there’s a wide variety of acts playing at each one – both local (Manchester) and touring artists – so you’ll probably see some musicians you’ve heard of and some you haven’t!

Trof, Fallowfield

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

Trof is a lively, studenty bar, nestling in the heart of Fallowfield, with lovely food, and a really friendly atmosphere. It’s usually rammed — especially in term time.

It’s a bit of a Manchester Institution, and this, the original Trof, has spawned three other venues — The Corner (which is right next door, on Wilmslow Road), Trof in the Northern Quarter, and the Deaf Institute (which is just off Oxford Road, near Sand Bar and Manchester Met uni)..

Trof Open Mic

This open mic is every Tuesday during term time, held in the big room upstairs. It’s always busy and bustling, with a good crowd – mainly students. People listen, though they also talk, which is kinda par for the course really. Definitely worth a look!

Music nights at Trof

Trof used to be one of the best music venues in Fallowfield — it hosted a huge range of nights, including North-South Divide, and my own Songs for the Bath Tub acoustic night.. The Trof Fallowfield open mic is still going strong on a Tuesday though – and it’s worth checking out if you’d like to play to a big, lively audience. It’s one of the better-known open mics in Manchester.
