What kinds of warehouse venues can I find in Manchester?

If you’re after a warehouse for hire in Manchester, you’ll be spoilt for choice. These venues are characterised by a great variety, so they can serve many different purposes. Some of the most common warehouse venue types you’ll find in the area include:

  • Dry hire warehouses. These venues are blank canvas spaces, which means you have great freedom when it comes to planning your event there. Usually, you can decorate the space as you wish, including your own furnishings, equipment, and catering. This type of warehouse is perfect for all kinds of events, from conferences to dance and yoga classes, fashion shows, photo shoots, and weddings. Studio One at The Life Centre North Manchester City Centre and 1830 Warehouse at Science and Industry Museum, both located in Deansgate, are some of such venues available on our website.
  • Photography and filming studios. Many warehouses have been converted into studio spaces with modern equipment, great lighting, and seamless backgrounds. Whether you need to shoot a commercial or host an editorial photography session, you’ll find something for yourself in Manchester! We can recommend the spaces at Lawsun Studios in Collyhurst or Un.titled Studio in Salford.
  • Warehouse bars and restaurants. Dreaming of hosting a party or networking event at a warehouse? It’s possible in Manchester! These venues have a unique industrial atmosphere and fully stocked bars to meet all your expectations. Some of the best warehouse bars in Manchester include The Bar at fivefourstudios in Ordsall and Quarter House in Manchester Piccadilly.

How early should I book a warehouse venue in Manchester?

The recommended booking time depends on the scale of your event. For most of them, it’s enough to book the warehouse at least 6-8 weeks in advance, however, large events such as conferences or weddings should be organised around a year prior. The rule of thumb is that the sooner you can book, the better, as the best venues tend to have very busy calendars! Additionally, you might catch some early bird deals and leave enough time to fix any unexpected issues if you start the whole process early enough.
