This is Victoria Warehouse: an event space like no other in the heart of Manchester

This edition of our ‘venues spotlight’ is written by Victoria Warehouse.  They discuss how the heritage of Manchester, ‘out the box thinking’ and urban architecture can be combined to create truly breath-taking events. 

Manchester Showmanship 
Our heritage in the cotton trade has been a symbol of strength and innovation in the city for more than a hundred years. Now, we’re channelling that spirit into Manchester showmanship. 

The historic nature and unconventional surroundings of Victoria Warehouse have inspired Britain’s greatest brands. Co-op, Topshop, Mini, Jaguar Landrover, Kellogg’s and Manchester United have all chosen us to deliver an eclectic mix of sports and music shows, parties, gala dinners, conferences and meetings. And the verdict was unanimous: we are the venue for enthralling events. 

But it’s not just a venue. Victoria Warehouse is supported by a team that know two events are never the same. They work hand in hand with our clients to adapt the space for large and small-scale events alike. Victoria Warehouse can be anything you want it to be. The limit is your imagination. 

Standard, off-the-shelf, pre-packaged event space – we’ve seen it all before. Victoria Warehouse is about much more than that. The Cotton Sheds and hotel stand proudly, giving you the freedom to choose a space that suits the occasion. 

Urban Ambience
The Victoria Warehouse Hotel holds multiple spaces in one. From the urban ambience of The Archives and Cellars, to the beautiful backdrop of The Bays, our hotel is defined by diversity. The charming Skyhook and Cinema are also available for smaller projects. A sprawling space for large events and productions,
The Cotton Sheds have a true character of their own. Spread out over two levels, The Cotton Sheds are comprised of eight rooms and limitless possibilities. 

Capacity numbers start from as little as 50 for an intimate banquet in The Skyhook, to a thrilling concert for 3,500 in Shed A of our Cotton Sheds. Our event spaces allow for such a variety in concept and vision, that we can ensure we advise and create the perfect experience for you and your guests. 

Distinctive, Imitable and Unforgettable
We defy convention by fine-tuning event spaces to ensure they’re perfect hosts for the occasion. Every inch of Victoria Warehouse can be dramatically transformed to embody your brand or theme from top to bottom. 

And we don’t just provide space; our team goes above and beyond to bring your ideas to life. By making small, impactful recommendations along the way, we ensure the result is something distinctive, inimitable and completely unforgettable.
