Visiting Partisan

We are located on the basement and first floor of 19 Cheetham Hill Road. Our building has a large ‘Salam Immigration‘ sign on the front — it’s right next door to the snooker centre.

For first floor events (meetings, workshops etc.) please use the front entrance. For basement events (gigs and other music nights) please use the entrance to the right side of the building as you face it (see below).


Train/tram: The closest train station and tram stops are located at Victoria Station, a 5-minute walk from Partisan. Exit the station onto Hanover Street, turn left onto Corporation Street, then left again across the bridge (Miller Street). Keep going until you see Partisan on the opposite side of the junction.

Bus: The 135 bus goes from Piccadilly Gardens — it’s four stops to ‘Park Place, Strangeways’, then a 2-minute walk back down Cheetham Hill Road to Partisan.

Metroshuttle 1 and Metroshuttle 2 are FREE buses that stop at Victoria Station (see walking directions above).

The M2 goes straight to Victoria from Piccadilly Station and the M1 goes to Victoria via Manchester Central Library and Spinningfields. Exact routes available here.


There is no public parking on our premises. The closest parking is a 3-minute walk away from Partisan, at Park Place Car Park (run by Total Car Parks). It is £3 for all-day parking.

Opening hours

Partisan does not have regular opening hours. Contact us if you’d like to visit outside of scheduled event times.


We can take card payments! Hurray! There are also several cash machines nearby, including outside the Co-op on Corporation Street, and the ICICI Bank which is a few doors further down on Cheetham Hill Road.


Partisan is currently not wheelchair accessible, although we are working hard to change this. For full accessibility information, click here.
