The Monastery Manchester is a Grade II* listed heritage site, once listed alongside the Taj Mahal and Pompeii as one of the world’s top 100 most important and endangered sites. Following a £12m restoration scheme, The Monastery has taken its place as one of the UK’s most inspiring venues, it leads the way in hosting a variety of events such as gala dinners, award ceremonies, weddings and much more! Owned and operated by the same Charitable Trust that saved it from dereliction over 25 years ago, all proceeds from events held at The Monastery help the Trust to maintain the heritage site as well as supporting the local community through charitable projects in Education, Skills, Arts and Health.


The Monastery is ideally located just a stone’s throw from Manchester City Centre and 2 miles from Piccadilly Train Station making it perfect for any guests travelling to the city.


The Great Nave, the main event space at the Monastery Manchester, with its unique and inspiring architecture, can seat up to 350 comfortably with a dance floor. The chancel floor of the high altar creates a natural stage and uses the beautiful reredos as the backdrop. The Great Nave is proceeded by the Welcome Wing, which can be used as a drinks reception area. Guests will also have access to the internal courtyard gardens.


Dinner Packages from £55 per person.


The Monastery is fully accessible for wheelchairs and buggies.
