Prestigious surroundings for your corporate event

Nothing says ‘winning’ like holding your event in a prestigious, Grade II listed building and architectural wonder, considered to be the great E W Pugin’s architectural masterpiece & loved by HRH King Charles III himself.

Extraordinary light, effects & visuals

Warm, natural light, deliberately designed by Pugin to stream through the stained glass windows at specific angles, adds a very special ambience to daytime events. For twilight and night-time events, our state-of-the-art lighting rig can transform the space into a spectacular explosion of colour.

Great Tech for Conferences

In ancient days, the wise escaped the workaday world by going on a retreat, taking time out to think clearly. Today we call this concept conferencing.

Our modern-day Monastery has been designed for just that purpose. We can connect an Apple TV to an HD screen, so you can instantly throw up presentations from iPhones or iPads. Our Wifi is free and you can hire our 4D Immersive Pod. Add augmented reality to your event for that extra touch of wow.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In these enlightened times, many businesses recognise that corporate social responsibility is important to the development of a progressive, ethical business model.

Manchester Monastery is such an ethical business. We are a non-profit, social initiative and every penny generated by our business is reinvested back into The Monastery & its upkeep and maintenance as a, historic building of global importance. A significant percentage is invested in free events, courses and activities for the community.

We’re committed to supporting business in their efforts to step up and raise the bar of their own social responsibility too. Find out why CSR is important & how we can help your business achieve its CSR objectives.
