Escape To Freight Island opens Friday 24th July, website bookings are now open.

Hidden in plain sight, Escape to Freight Island is a vision of our collective future. A place where we can go and be together again.

An inspiring urban landscape where an outdoor food market, art space and terrace-style seating collide on one sprawling tract, a long-forgotten freight depot carved from the city’s industrial past.

An international destination akin to the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Coney Island in New York and Grand Central Market in Los Angeles, it will combine restaurant quality food vendors, inventive bars, secret dens, music, immersive art, festival takeovers and family focused happenings.

Aiming to become one of the most forward-thinking and disruptive markets in the world, Escape to Freight Island opens in Manchester this July.

Launching with its pivotal ‘Safe + Social Manifesto’, and a limited 600-capacity first phase, Escape to Freight Island will expand to welcome 2,500 people when fully open later this year.

Platform 15 will be soundtracked by Escape to Freight Island Radio, a production in collaboration with Reform Radio. This will feature an exclusive programme of bespoke mixes and selections by very special guest DJs alongside local selectors, in advance of their live performances once entertainment restrictions have been lifted. 

From July 24th, you can book a table for up to three hours from Thursday to Sunday, midday to midnight.
