Our unique industrial back drop can create an ideal space for large scale conferences for up to 1600 as well as smaller scale meetings. High profile clients such as Siemens, Maplin, Heineken and Pure Gym have all recently hosted conferences here.

Our site encompasses two buildings, namely The Cotton Sheds our large events space and the Victoria Warehouse Hotel which also includes our smaller events space such as The Bays.

The Cotton Sheds boast our signature industrial aesthetic with exposed brickwork and other original features. With the capacity to host up to 1600 for a conference and ample break out space available, The Cotton Sheds truly are an unusual event space. Finishing touches include cotton reels transformed into poseur tables and original warehouse doors reclaimed to become chic bars.

The Bays, originally used to store Easter eggs and Kelloggs products are made up of two adjoining spaces. Bay 1 is a large pre-function space with a large feature bar and open kitchen. Bay 2, is our ‘plug and play’ space which comes with a huge AV package already built-in providing a hassle free event solution.

Victoria Warehouse is not just a venue for large delegate numbers, we also cater for smaller numbers too. Our head office event space can hold up to 30 delegates but as little at 2 too. This light and airy space boasts natural daylight along with a built-in boardroom table and AV package. The Head Office has previously served Chancellor George Osborne after making his Northern Powerhouse speech in The Cotton Sheds.

All of our catering is provided in-house meaning whether you’re attending a private dining event for 10 guests or a conference for 1,600 delegates you’re guaranteed a consistent level of fresh and tasty food. No matter what the numbers our talented chefs will create dishes guaranteed to impress.

Where else in Manchester can your conference simply ooze character? As a creative canvas of unlimited potential, We Are What You Make Us.
