The jewel in the crown of Manchester’s fastest moving city-centre district, New Century is an iconic part of the city’s musical history. Mid-century architecture combines with state-of-the-art production for unforgettable live music, comedy and community events for up to 1,300 people. The main hall is the heart of New Century, considered one of the finest modernist towers in the United Kingdom. The venue retains its unique mid-century character, with an original sprung maple dancefloor and distinctive wooden panelling. A newly restored ‘disco ceiling’ lighting installation creates an immersive and responsive technicolour environment for all moods.
Grade-II listed 1960s dancehall reimagined as a platform for emerging talent.
