what our customers say

Christina (Event Organiser), MMU
"The retreat was really good indeed, and I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the Monastery is and by the selection of food and desert you served on the day. Thank you again."
Chloe and Ash (Newly Weds), Private
"We both had an amazing time and so did all our guests. Many complimented on how fantastic the venue was and how good the food was. Please pass our regards on to the chefs, the food was better than we remembered! The serving staff were also brilliant. Very attentive and couldn’t do enough to help, they were great.
Thank you to yourself and the other manager! He did a great job with the music, directing the serving staff and overseeing things on the day.
Thanks again for making our day so special.

"Hi Kate

I just wanted to drop you an email to say a huge thank you to all the staff.

Our events have such huge requirements due to the guests we invite and the staff were just brilliant in helping to accommodate (even when we have a group of 20 turn up half way through the day without booking…)

The organisation on the day was just brilliant, I will fill in the feedback form and send it back ASAP


Pippa (10th October 2019)"


The Monastery Manchester Logo

Situated 1.9 miles outside the city centre, this hidden treasure is Manchester' most unique and inspiring venue. Pugin’s architectural masterpiece sits alongside the Taj Mahal as having been listed by the World Monuments Fund as one of the 100 most endangered sites in the world.

The Monastery is now used for a variety of events such as conferences, weddings, gala dinners, exhibitions and fashion shows.

With an exclusive event management and catering service, we pride ourselves on delivering world class events. With complimentary on-site car parking and easy access to the city centre make this the perfect location.

All profits from events held are donated to the Charitable Trust which saved The Monastery from ruin. This provides for the maintenance of the buildings and supports the local community through our charitable projects in Education, Skills, Arts and Health.

What better way for companies to demonstrate Corporate Social Responsibility in action by contributing to an award winning, flagship community renewal programme.
