Venue

You can hire Partisan for your event!

Partisan has four different spaces available for hire, located just a 5 minute walk from Victoria Station, and central Manchester.

As well as having a great space for your event, your booking will be helping support a socially responsible community project. We’re not-for-profit, and every penny is put back into running and improving Partisan for community good.

You can hire Partisan for talks and discussions, private meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops and classes, pop up shops, cafes, markets, location filming and photography, acoustic (non-amplified) performances, production / theatre rehearsals and performances, and film screenings.

About Partisan

Our bars and events are run by volunteers. Volunteers believe in Partisan and are giving up their time for free. Everyone in the venue is required to be respectful at all times. We have a safer spaces policy which includes respecting everyone regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability or race. This creates a supportive, open and friendly environment for events which may often be considered radical or marginal.

We offer:

  • Self-serve tea and coffee making facilities (additional fees may apply)
  • Projector, basic PA, whiteboards and flipcharts (additional fees may apply)
  • High speed 5g internet
  • On-site assistance
  • Access to our community and political resource library
  • In-house and online promotion of any relevant events: we have a reach of over 1000 members and over 10,000 followers over social media
