The heart and core of Depot Mayfield
The main performance space, Depot, is a cavernous warehouse featuring original brickwork and steelwork pillars. With enough space to host 6,100 people standing, it’s the perfect place to showcase high profile concerts, live and electronic music shows, art installations, theatre, cultural events and much more. Depot is here to move you.
The open warehouse
With conjoining spaces providing a myriad of opportunities, the venue’s second-biggest arena, Concourse, will offer free-to-attend community events, food markets, record fairs, retail exhibitions, car shows and much more. With a capacity of 3,200 standing, one side of the warehouse space is now completely exposed to the outdoors, allowing natural light to illuminate the pillared unique interior.
The roof-top destination
Undergoing the most radical transformation whilst utilising the original shape of Depot Mayfield’s derelict railway track and platform, the roof-top Platform will become one of Manchester’s most unique open-air destinations. Whilst plans are in place to open platform in 2020, the location is available for photography and filming shoots now.
