Escape to Freight Island is a forward-thinking market set to hit Manchester in mid-July at the Depot Mayfield.

Aiming to become one of the most forward-thinking and disruptive markets in the world, Escape to Freight Island will be an international destination similar to legendary markets such as Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Coney Island in New York and Grand Central Market in Los Angeles. Expect restaurant-quality food vendors, inventive bars, secret dens, music, immersive art, festival takeovers and family-focused happenings.

Freight Island will launch phase one mid-July. The first area to open its doors will be dubbed ‘Platform 15’ and launches with a ‘Safe & Social Manifesto’. The capacity is limited to 600 for this first phase, expanding to 2,500 people when it fully opens later this year. You can book ahead to be part of this through the Escape To Freight Island website.
