The Monastery is a place for you. A place to find inspiration. A place to find yourself

Manchester’s magnificent Monastery is Pugin’s architectural masterpiece. It sits alongside the Taj Mahal and the ancient ruins of Pompeii as having been listed in the 100 most endangered sites in the world, with a rich heritage that should never be lost.

Following a £6.5 million restoration scheme, this hidden treasure has taken its place as one of the UK’s most inspiring venues for any corporate, social or cultural occasion. Visitors remark that every space in The Monastery appears to be blessed with a feeling of well-being. It’s so real, you think you can touch it. This stunning gothic venue is the perfect setting for any special event. With impressively versatile internal spaces, The Monastery’s in-house team can help you create an experience which your guests will never forget.

The venue can be dressed and themed for an event for up to 600 guests, with outstanding catering and a bespoke support service. The architectural splendour of this stunning building is complemented by the beautiful garden, to add an extra dimension and real flexibility to your event.

As well as offering a visual feast, the building’s acoustics are outstanding. Whether spoken word or music, the richness of the sound can produce magical results. It is no surprise that the venue is used for both Television broadcasts and live festivals. From Songs of Praise and Aled Jones’ Choir Of The Year to fashion shows and parties. The Monastery rocks.

The Monastery’s inspirational Great Nave is adaptable for every size of conference, product launch or public forum. Acoustics are ideal for all levels of communication, from spoken word to audio programmes. Our in-house team are on hand to advise, so everything is perfectly set up to match your needs and ensure your event is stress-free


You can book The Monastery for your own Christmas party so why not consider Christmas well in advance and get organised. Let us take the pressure off your plans!

We’ll create the party that YOU want, from food and wine to entertainment, with the theme of your choice and the attention to detail which has become our trademark. Just don’t leave it too late!

Relish the rich memories whilst walking the cloisters, then enjoy the sumptuous traditional food and mulled wine produced by our acclaimed Head Chef John Rose, and his team. Celebrating Christmas at The Monastery is the most wonderful experience you could imagine and one you will truly never forget.

Year after year we’re delighted to see the same customers coming back to us because staff and guests have requested it. It’s nice to know that we’re getting it right.

Further information

Whether a celebratory banquet or honouring an achievement, there is no better place for pride to take centre stage. Class is built into our DNA, and our award-winning team will ensure your expectations are exceeded.

The splendour of the Great Nave at The Monastery provides a magnificent backdrop for breathtaking banquets, gala dinners and awards celebrations with formal seating for up to 450 guests. Food and hospitality is our passion, cooked with love and served with soul.

We host many awards ceremonies at The Monastery; we think there may be a natural synergy with our own penchant for picking up trophies. We’re now at thirty something and still counting.

Having so many wonderful events at The Monastery creates the incredible aura which has become the hallmark of our beautiful venue. It’s an honour when you have your Banquets & Awards with us! Paying attention to every last detail is built into our DNA. We want to ensure that everything is exactly as our clients request. Taking the burden of organisation on the day is a big part of our job, working alongside the event planners to best suit our clients. Anticipating changes in requirements is also part of our job as we know that occasional ‘adjustments’ are inevitable.

Ensuring that guests at our events enjoy their day with us is paramount. An important part of this is the quality of the food and drink we offer, as well as the speed and consistency of service delivery.

Not only that, but you will be helping the building keep maintained and in fantastic condition by holding your event here!
