Our building is currently closed as part of our transformation project, but we are taking bookings for 2020.

When we reopen, you’ll be able to hire our space for conferences, events and weddings. We’ll also be renting out office space, complete with high speed internet and  private meeting rooms.

As a not for profit organisation, all profits generated from venue hire are reinvested into Contact. This directly funds our work with young people, the local community and onstage.

Conferences & Events

We are situated at the heart of the Corridor Manchester Enterprise Zone, on the University of Manchester campus and a short walk away from Manchester Science Park and the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Our flexible spaces are ideal for conferences, workshops or receptions and we can build a package to suit your needs. As we’re a theatre venue, the technical spec of our spaces is second to none and we can also offer a range of artistic services to enhance your event, such as workshop facilitation, icebreakers and creative responses.

We’ve partnered up with Indian street food company Chaat Cart to offer something a little different to a standard beige buffet, and we can tailor the catering to your tastes and budget.

From planning to delivery, our team will work with you to ensure all of your operational, technical and delegate needs are fulfilled.

Our Space 1 and Space 2 auditoria are ideal for staging showcases, scratch nights and ceremonies.

We are also offer bespoke hire packages to schools and community groups in the region.
