End Of Year Reviews

MAC Global’s 2023 diverse output embraced a range of genres from across the musical spectrum; from indie pop and boybands, through rock, soul, classical, opera to drum n bass. Not to forget a bit of laughter thrown in by way of UK national treasure, Jason Manford. We programmed 30% more concerts and gigs than 2022, including 3-day festivals, one-off pop concerts, mini-regional tours and full orchestral pieces. Here’s a short stroll down memory lane.
