1. An iconic hall at a restored Manchester warehouse: The Bays, Victoria Warehouse


The Victoria Warehouse in Manchester was originally built as a storage facility for the city, way back in the 1920s. Today, it is one of the most well-known venues in the area, offering a variety of spaces that have played host to everything from music concerts to weddings and conferences.

The Bays, the most popular space at Victoria Warehouse, was initially used to store cotton stock, and later household favourites such as Kellogg’s, McVitie’s and Cadburys. It can now accommodate up to 400 guests and is a great option for private parties, conferences and private dining.

The interiors are an elegant mix of the old and new, and a spacious pre-function area with a feature bar leads into the main room which includes everything you need for a great event from screens and projectors to colour-changing down lighters on the pillars.

The Victoria Warehouse is a familiar sight for Manchester United fans with the Manchester United Football Ground railway station, popularly known as the Manchester United FC Halt, being just walking distance from the venue.

2. A spectacular hall at a restored chapel: Albert Hall Manchester


A former Wesleyan Chapel with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and the original organ, all still beautifully maintained, Albert Hall has been one of Manchester’s most sort after concert venues since it reopened in 2012. But the hall is equally capable of hosting private parties, weddings and really any type of function you have in mind.

Designated a Grade 2 by English Heritage, this historic venue can host as many as 1800 people! But don’t worry if your guest list is not quite as big because the space can be tailored to more intimate functions as well.

With the hall’s catering provided by the celebrated Albert's Schloss Cook Haus and Bier Palace, you won’t have to worry about the food, drinks and entertainment for your function.

3. A newly restored hall at “Manchester’s Taj Mahal”: The Welcome Wing, The Monastery Manchester


The Monastery in Gorton, designed by E.W. Pugin is considered to be an architectural masterpiece and referred to as “Manchester’s Taj Mahal”. Built back in 1872 for the Franciscan Order, the Monastery was nearly knocked down in the 1990s before a miraculous effort by a community of volunteers ensured not only that the building was saved but also restored to its former glory.

The Welcome Wing at The Monastery Manchester is prime for hosting events after a £3 million refurbishment. The space has direct access to the serene internal courtyard gardens and offers plenty of light and fresh air.

The venue which can accommodate 350 guests is available for private hire and is just a short walk from Ashburys Station.

Available for private hire and with a capacity to host 180 people, the hall comes with a private bar, kitchen and lift so you don’t have to worry about any disruptions.

Just a short walk from Manchester Oxford Road station, The Memorial Hall is an ideal venue for a memorable function.
