Depot is a 10,000 capacity venue for culture located at Manchester’s historic former railway station, Mayfield. Part of the £1 billion regeneration of Mayfield, the Depot is set to launch at Mayfield this summer. The proposed 10,000 capacity performance, community and studio space will reclaim the historic former Mayfield station site, next to Manchester Piccadilly station.

Alongside the main performance space at Depot will be two smaller areas. Concourse will be providing a range of free-to-attend community events, seasonal activities and food experiences.

While the second space, called Archive, will offer a more intimate performance area as well as providing options for local artists.

The new arts, music and culture space will open with a world premiere of ‘Invisible Cities’ by 59 Productions and Rambert, a contemporary ballet production combining theatre, choreography, music, architectural design and projection mapping, produced exclusively for Manchester International Festival this July, closely followed by Manchester Pride Live events this August.


Depot is located just next to Manchester Piccadilly Station, and Manchester Piccadilly Metro, which is a 2 minute walk away. Piccadilly has links across the North, including Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle and York. As well as services to the rest of the UK such as London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, and Bournemouth.

Ardwick and Manchester Oxford Road stations are also within easy reach.


From festivals to markets, pop up cinemas to pop up events, corporate shows to award shows and theatre to live gigs and music shows, Depot is a Versatile and diverse space perfect for a range of uses.
