9 Low cost venues in Manchester

Manchester is a city rich in heritage, notorious for its place in many facets of the UK’s history, however, the most understated part is the city’s wide range of interesting venues. As well as the pricier, well-known venues, like Manchester Central Library (pictured above) and two of the world’s most impressive football stadiums, there are plenty of affordable locations to host your next event.

As well as being surprisingly affordable, many are also professional, allowing you to get the most out of your event. When planning your event you need to consider the surroundings of the venue – being closer to the city centre should mean you’re within reach of a tram, train or bus station. Always consider accessibility, it can often increase attendance.

We’ve compiled a list of 9 professional venues that are within a short walking distance from public transport (cutting the expense of a city taxi). Each venue can cater to a variety of events, from workshops to seminars – they also range from low to medium cost. 

Have a look at the images and click to book or enquire directly with the venues themselves. (Many venues have multiple spaces available so it’s worth having a look and seeing if there’s spaces that can better suit your events’ needs.)
