The Monastery Manchester Opens New Welcome Wing

The Monastery Manchester Opens New Welcome Wing

The Monastery Manchester Opens New Welcome Wing A new £3m extension has opened for events at The Monastery Manchester. The brand new eco-friendly wing provides a fantastic space for both corporate and private events, as well as community activities.   The contemporary space is perfect for conference registration and catering. As well as pre-dinner drinks for corporate dinners, private parties and charity events. The new wing stands on the original footprint of a previous wing, which was torn down in the 1960’s.  The carbon neutral building is 6,650 sq ft and offers lots of natural daylight. It also offers direct access to the gardens and main event space, The Great Nave. The Welcome Wing can accommodate up to 350 guests for a standing reception and 100 guests in a banquet style. The extension was made possible after a National Heritage Lottery Fund grant of almost £2m, and a £1m donation from the Stoller Charitable Trust.  Chief executive officer of The Monastery of St Francis & Gorton Trust, Elaine Griffiths said “This is a tremendously exciting day for us.  This new building blends beautifully with the church and friary and we are delighted with the results. This has been the biggest investment we have made in the building since we completed the major £6m restoration work to save the Monastery 10 years ago, and it’s wonderful to see it finished.” The Monastery is looking forward to welcoming new and existing guests to this beautiful space.  For almost 10 years The Monastery has been hosting world class events of all sizes including conferences, corporate dinners, product launches and Christmas parties.   As a...
