Venue Hire

Located in the heart of Manchester city centre, our 5th and 6th floors offer a unique private dining and event space. We can host either 40 guests for dining or up to 100 for a reception. This completely self-contained suite is situated at the top of our impressive Urbis building, offering stunning views across one of the most bustling parts of the city.

The Pitch Gallery on the ground floor is the place for spectacular gala dinners, drinks receptions and award ceremonies. In house staging with an accompanying 126” screen provides the ideal focal point for Q&As, live music and presentations. The outside terrace overlooking Cathedral Gardens is fully licensed, providing the perfect opportunity for summer events and barbeques.
