Boasting over 23,000m² of space, with a capacity of over 10,000, Manchester Central prides itself on being one of the UK’s largest and most versatile event venues, and hosts a vast array of both small and large-scale events. With a history spanning over 140 years, the well-known and prestigious building has adapted to the needs of its occupants decade after decade, and it continues to do so today.

Manchester being named an international destination of choice in 2023 by several travel, tourism and cultural publications makes it the perfect city to bring people together. What’s more, Manchester Central’s location is just that – central. Just a few minutes walking distance from several tram stops, as well as the city’s four train stations, the venue can be accessed easily from all corners of the country.

It offers everything an event could need from a venue, all under one roof, from outstanding customer service to in-house catering, and its team of events experts is always on hand to help organisers and guests, every step of the way.

Making events run smoothly

The team at Manchester Central has garnered a reputation for going above and beyond for both event organisers and attendees; on hand to support with planning from day one right through to show-open, taking the pressure off and ensuring everyone has an unforgettable experience.

What’s more, the venue is incredibly proud to offer its outstanding in-house catering service, which designs hand-crafted and mouth-watering meals, buffets, and refreshments using sustainable and locally sourced produce. In a progressive move to drive its sustainability agenda, the venue made the decision to reduce red meat options by 52% through the introduction of plant-based dishes. A move that led to its vegan and vegetarian dishes being accredited by The Vegetarian Society’s approved trademarks.

Matt Hagan, executive chef at Manchester Central, said: “My two favourite aspects of the job are creating exciting catering options for both new and existing clients and connecting with our local suppliers who, I believe, provide some of the best fruit, vegetables, dairy and meat available within the UK.”
