A VENUE WITHOUT PARALLEL
Unique and Exclusively Yours.
IWM North is situated on The Quays in the heart of the new cityscape of MediaCityUK, the new home of BBC and ITV and next door to the new Coronation Street Studios.
Designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, IWM North is a remarkable experience. The first UK building created by this architectural genius, it is innovative and inspiring. Within its striking, aluminium-clad structure, you will find a unique venue for your Meetings and Events.
You can dine, make presentations, hold launches and entertain in our dramatic spaces. Whatever your plans – a special event, grand, formal or intimate – we’re able to accommodate your needs, including parking for 140 cars, a rarity for a location so close to the city centre.
For evening events you have exclusive use of the Museum, offering a high degree of flexibility. You can dine under a suspended Harrier jump-jet, make a presentation with the backdrop of historic artillery pieces, or dance beside a T34 Russian tank.
Using state-of-the-art technology, IWM North’s cutting edge 360 degree digital projection system will create a theme which is on brand for your event.
Offering comfort and style, choose from the modern WaterShard conference spaces for breakfast meetings, conferences, presentations and lunches. IWM North is one of the most iconic and impressive venues in the UK and has recently been named as one of the top four large attractions in the country.
IWM North is beautifully located on The Quays, a unique waterside location. The beautiful quay side is included in the exclusive hire of the museum during summer months, which offers views of MediaCityUK and can accommodate up to 700 guests for a standing reception or BBQ.
Opened in June 2017, the WaterShard provides dedicated private event spaces with state of the art AV technology, air conditioning and stunning views of The Quays and MediaCityUK. The flexible spaces offer a range of options for day time meetings for 2 to 120 delegates, and can be used for evening networking or dinners for up to 80 guests.
Exclusive to our venue hire customers, we offer special bespoke tours developed around a theme of your choice. Alternatively as part of your event you can view our latest major exhibition. Your guests can also take one of our special exhibitions highlights tours, which are timed to meet your schedule.
