A new 10,000 capacity venue is opening in Manchester, Depot

The space could see up to a million visitors per year...

Plans have been revealed for a 10,000 capacity culture venue at Manchester's historic Mayfield site.

The new venue, Depot, is the result of a collaboration between The Mayfield Partnership (comprising of regeneration specialist U+I, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR) and venue specialists Broadwick Venues and Vibration Group, who are the team behind London's Printworks and Drumsheds.

The plans for the Mayfield site will also include two smaller venues, Archive and Concourse. Concourse will host free community events and seasonal activities, meanwhile Archive will be a much more intimate performance space with low-cost studio and rehearsal facilities for local talent.

The venue is set to launch this summer with Manchester Pride Live being hosted 24th and 25th August at Depot.

Last year, new club Brickworks opened in Manchester.

Printworks in London are set for a three-day weekender with the Hydra this summer.
