Victoria Warehouse

Victoria Warehouse is an event space like no other in the heart of Manchester. Our heritage in the cotton trade has been a symbol of strength and innovation in the city for more than a hundred years. Now, we're channelling that spirit into Manchester showmanship. The historic nature and unconventional surroundings of Victoria Warehouse have inspired Britain's greatest brands. Co-op, Topshop, Mini, Jaguar Landrover, Kellogg's and Manchester United have all chosen us to deliver an eclectic mix of sports and music shows, parties, gala dinners, conferences and meetings.
