Partisan is a collective and volunteer run space for independent, community led, DIY and cultural based projects. As a collective and co-operative, Partisan is democratically owned and managed by the people who work in and use the space.We are located over two floors in a Grade II listed building on Cheetham Hill Road. Our basement is a flexible venue space and bar, and upstairs is a large social space surrounded by offices and meeting rooms. Both can be used by community and independent cultural groups for meetings, exhibitions, film screenings, book launches, parties and gigs. Revenue generated by membership, office and room rental, music events and the café-bar subsidise the free and affordable use of the space for those that need it. more info at: https://partisancollective.net/


Ajah UK: 5 Piece Hip-Hop Rock outfit.
Together, front women Sam Acquaah and Jaheda, guitarist Louise Anderson, bassist Sarah Kerton & drummer Sophie Wozencraft form Ajah UK, an unsigned, independent and unique Hip-Hop/Rock act. The absence of a record label/manager, however, hasn’t stopped this band of fierce women making a name for themselves across the UK and beyond.
Ajah UK don’t conform to the hetero-normative perceptions of women and take pride in this. Music gives each band member a voice and path to freedom and together as Ajah UK they will walk that path beyond all boundaries and limitations. What constitutes their live performances, therefore, is an epic and intense collaboration of words, music and entertainment that cuts the bullshit and represents everything they stand for as musicians and women.

Pave: Lush melodies, grooves and vocals from Leeds. Like climbing inside a pillow and being beaten with a cool balloon.

Iceboy Violet: This Manchester icon is a producer / vocalist re-appropriating the energy, emotionality and resistance of Grime music to challenge heteronormativity and toxic masculinity. Giving voice to anger, anxieties and defiance as personal and collective catharsis.

Hannah Ross: is a disabled musician in Manchester. Her new EP ‘what are the natural forms?’ is a record about hearts and bones.

The Sewer Cats Band: Punk duo from Manchester. Loud, offbeat rhythmical tunes about cats and smashing the patriarchy.

Bianca scout: Enchanting vocalist and electronica artist from London.
“…enthralling, scattershot compositions and vocal work” – DJMAG

Mola Mola: Spacious, laid back grooves with hints of psychedelia, Manchester based musicians, one of many fantastic musical projects from these talented people.

Nino’s Blue Saloon: dreamy psych folk-rock from Lancaster

Oort Clod: Manchester based indie punk guitar music. Featuring members of Unpaid Intern.

Also joining us are the fantastic Wilderness Record Store of Withington, who will be selling some of their records and merch. www.wildernessrecords.co.uk/

FOOD: We will be serving up This & That Café Ltd famous 3 curry and rice at around 6pm. Crisps are available at the bar and there will be a baked goods sale also through out the day.

The Ping Pong table and Wii games will be available to play on throughout the day.


Regrettably, Partisan is not yet wheelchair accessible. However, we are working closely with the council and our architect to make this Grade 2 Listed building accessible to all. Further information on their progress can be found on their website, and is updated regularly: www.partisancollective.net/accessibility/

You can contact info@partisancollective.net for specific access questions or requests.

Partisan is located across 2 floors of a 3-story building. The basement has 11 steps from street level, without a handrail. The first floor has 22 steps from street level, with a handrail. There are 40 steps between the two floors. All toilets are gender-neutral and are located on both levels of the venue. On the first floor, these are single contained stalls. In the basement, there are stalls and urinals.

Seating is available on each floor at all events. For performances, a seated viewing area will be available.

Assistance dogs are allowed at all times. Other well behaved dogs are usually welcome, with the exception of in performance rooms of loud music events. If you have a dog allergy/phobia let us know – we’ll do what we can.

Partisan aims to be a safer space. As such, harmful and discriminatory behaviour is not tolerated.
