Our studio space. Rows of chairs at different heights, festoon lighting lit dimly and a projector.

Welcome to

The purple and blue 53tw logo on it's side with Studio written below it.

Whilst we wait for phase two to be completed and our 150 seater theatre and 300 person events space to be completed, we're opening up 53two Studio to you! In this space we can accommodate up to 80 people seated for theatre and cinema, we can host live music events, sit down dinners, seminars and workshops, live stream productions, private parties and more. As our space develops, we're collating our tech spec to share with you, however, the space will include a lighting rig, PA system, cinema screen and projector. With a 3-phase power supply, we have enough juice to support your event. With just a sound-proof door between the studio and the fully functioning bar/café, we can provide you with everything you need.

To arrange a site-visit or discuss your requirements in more detail, get in touch!

53two have their own rehearsal/workshop studio space which is available for hire within the Great Northern Warehouse. Fully accessible with lift access from Deansgate and/or stairs from Gt Bridgewater St, it boasts private toilets (accessible) and one large room which has a kitchenette with sink and amenities as well as a separate area within the room, with sofa, screen, seating and library of scripts and texts. The space is 8m x 9.5m (not including the Green Room area) and has five double sockets around the walls.


Located in the heart of the city you are a stones throw from shops, cafes and restaurants as well as Manchester’s theatres. Attached to the space are several bars and restaurants and an Odeon Cinema. Do note however, these are across a small outdoor walkway and so there is zero noise pollution. 

You are also just a 20 second walk from our home, 53two, which can be used as a base for actors when not working or a place to unwind at the end of a long day of rehearsals. In hiring the space you’re given 15% off all food and drink bought at 53two.
