3 unusual conference venues in Manchester


Manchester’s legendary reputation as a hub for vibrant networking events and corporate conferences is a testament to its status as the capital of the North. Why not sample the city’s famous hospitality for yourself and your delegates? There are unique and unusual venues aplenty that could be just right for your next business event or off-duty gathering.

Here are our 3 favourite unusual venues in Manchester:



Located less than a mile from the city centre, fivefourstudios is a bright, airy and unique event space with a modern industrial edge. There are three floors of versatile space to accommodate meetings and conferences, media launches and social events, photo shoots, parties and weddings for a maximum of 200 guests. There’s private secure parking and easy transport links.

3 pure white studios are the perfect blank canvas that can be customised to your heart’s content. There’s an elegant, relaxed bar and a private lounge for stylish evening dos. While many of the building’s original industrial features have been sympathetically restored, the result is an elegant yet eclectic mix of minimalism and opulence for all occasions. fivefourstudios can be hired individually or on an exclusive basis for larger events.

Victoria Warehouse

Historic, flexible and completely unique, Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse is as far off the shelf as it is possible to be. The imposing industrial backdrop of this landmark building is surely the perfect venue for corporate events with an urban edge.

The huge and flexible floor space means that large conferences or entertainment events for up to 1,600 theatre style delegates plus ample breakout space are not a problem, but neither is a boardroom style meeting for 10 people.

An imposing historical event space with classic Victorian warehouse features including rows of majestic concrete columns spanning the width of the building, this versatile blank canvas space works well as an exclusive hire or as additional support space for smaller events.
