Our spaces flex to your needs, allowing you to host a launch like no other. Soaring indoor and outdoor spaces provide the ultimate backdrop, allowing your brand or product to take centre stage. Make the most of our event-optimised, industrial but modern space.

Well-connected and in the heart of Manchester, our striking building is the perfect blank canvas to draw attention to your brand. Whether you’re providing customers with a hands-on experience, creating content for future use or hosting an exclusive after party, this is a place to gather, meet and innovate.

As the UK’s most significant cultural landmark since the Tate Modern, audiences won’t forget their time spent here.

And when you choose to host at Aviva Studios, you directly help us to widen engagement with the arts and develop the next generation of creative talent.

You can realise an ambition or vision here and now in this place... It's a two-way street between Manchester and the rest of the world.
