Venue Profile: The Monastery, Manchester

Fiona recently visited The Monastery in Manchester. Read the venue profile below:


The Monastery is a stunning Gothic venue, which dates back to the 18th century. Perfect for team meetings, private dining events and large conferences.


Situated in Gorton, just outside of Central Manchester, the venue is just under 10 minutes away from Manchester Piccadilly Station and Manchester Airport can easily be reached in 20 minutes by car.


Dating back to 1863 and built by Franciscan Monks, The Monastery is the perfect setting if you’e looking to host an event in Manchester. It can accommodate for events up to 650 delegates in the impressive Great Nave which is a really unique space and adaptable for different types of events from conferences and product launches through to banqueting events (even Television broadcasts such as Songs of Praise and Aled Jones’ Choir Of The Year have been held here).

For smaller conferences and events, the Private Chapel is perfect (monks once prayed here), while the 7 Friary Rooms are ideal for meetings and training. The meeting rooms are split across 3 floors with lift access. Outside, the Archangel Garden courtyard area is a great space for break out sessions and drinks receptions.

The venue is currently developing a brand new sustainable ‘Welcome Wing’ which will be opening in early 2017 and will include a fantastic new reception area.

While there is no accommodation on-site, there are plenty of hotels close by that we can recommend.
