About The Black-E

We offer the facilities of a modern building within a historic 19th Century exterior. The unique and spectacular Main Space is suited to film production, conferences, and high profile events (artistic and sporting). Adjoining spaces are suited to receptions, meetings, and private parties; to exhibitions, workshops, and rehearsals; and to performances on a chamber scale.

We are located on the edge of the city center, at the heart of Europe’s oldest Chinatown, and within walking distance of the shopping quarters and most of the City’s major institutions (cathedrals, universities, museums, galleries, theatres, concert halls). Road and rail access is excellent, and we are just 7 miles from John Lennon Airport.
