Flourishing Culture

A compelling cultural centre

Manchester is an increasingly exciting and vibrant place to live and work. In shopping, dining and entertainment, the quality and variety is comparable with any world city.

A hive of creativity

Sitting at the city’s heart, Albert Square is an area rich in inspiration. As well as being a much-loved place to sit and watch the world go by, this beautiful tree-lined space regularly comes alive as a social venue, playing host to music events and food markets. And, for 18 days every July, Albert Square gives a home to the Manchester International Festival. The atmosphere is magnetic; music, comedy, theatre and food combine in an exciting celebration of art and culture.

The Location

It’s in this exciting context that The Albert Estate itself is set to evolve into Manchester’s latest leisure destination. Accompanying our existing businesses – one of which has been thriving here since the 60s – new enterprises, offering the best in food, retail and wellbeing, will be taking up residence. This welcome influx will energise the scene and enrich the lives of tenants, city inhabitants and visitors
