Depot Mayfield

Creative Tourist

Part of the £1 billion regeneration of Mayfield, The Depot provides a platform for a diverse programme of cultural events, including the annual club series, The Warehouse Project.

It’s a spectacular cultural venue for Manchester, potentially one of the city’s biggest attractions, with up to a million visiting per year. Alongside the main performance space in The Depot, there are two smaller areas. One of those, called Concourse, provides a range of free-to-attend community events, seasonal activities and food experiences. The second space, called Archive, offers a more intimate performance area as well as low-cost rehearsal and studio space for local artists.

The venue is a collaboration between The Mayfield Partnership (comprising regeneration specialist U+I, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR) and venue specialists Broadwick Venues and Vibration Group, the team behind the hugely successful Printworks London, The Drumsheds and Exhibition London.

The Mayfield Partnership aims to transform the Mayfield site into a world-class urban neighbourhood over the next decade, delivering new office and leisure space, homes, a hotel, and the now-established Mayfield Park.
