An artist’s impression of The Factory Manchester, which is due to open in the city in 2019.

Designed to allow a radically new approach to cultural production and performance, The Factory Manchester is set to become the city’s most cutting-edge arts venue.

Intended as a flagship cultural centre for the North and North West, commissioning original works in partnership with leading national and international organisations, The Factory Manchester will make and present a wide range of art forms and culture, incorporating theatre, music, dance, technology, film, TV, media and live relays, scientific advancements and the connections between all of these – under one roof.

It will form a part of the new St John’s neighbourhood, which is being developed on the 15-acre site of the former Granada TV Studios, including hotels, independent food and drink outlets, and extensive open green spaces.

Construction is due to begin in 2016 with completion in 2019. Details of group incentives will be released closer to the opening date.
