Manchester Depot Railway Station has been closed and derelict since 1986, however, it has recently been turned into a huge new cultural venue and creative hub tipped to become one of Manchester’s biggest ever city centre attractions. So of course, it will host our next Gin Fever Festival on September 13th, 14th & 15th.
Costing a massive £1 billion, this huge regeneration project will see all 30 acres of the Mayfield site brought back to life and reinvented. The project is a collaboration between The Mayfield Partnership (U+I, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR) and venue specialists Broadwick Venues and Vibration Group (the team behind London’s hugely successful Printworks, The Drumsheds and Exhibition London).
The venue which is located directly behind Piccadilly Station will have a performance space with 10,000 capacity! Alongside the venue’s main performance space will be two smaller area: Concourse, which will host free community events and seasonal activities, and Archive, a more intimate venue that will double up as a cheap rehearsal and studio space for Manchester artists.
