CFCCA’s RIBA award-winning building provides the perfect venue for all sorts of events.


“We really enjoyed the use of the space and it was great to use a venue that was really unique and had personality.” – Counter Context

“The Jasmine Suite is a one of a kind in Manchester City centre for putting on intimate talks and workshops. It is a no brainer to work with CFCCA as they are friendly, accommodating and efficient when managing the hires. The room has a lot of facilities such as an inbuilt projector and a kitchen and features like the sliding wall make it a truly flexible space to fit our event needs. It is our first choice when looking for rooms to put on photography workshops.” – Redeye, The Photography Network

“An unusual and charming venue for entertaining, perfectly located with welcoming and helpful staff.” – David Brownlow. Vice President for the UK and Europe, TRG Arts

“The Jasmine Suite was perfect for our meeting, the furniture and seating worked well and there were refreshments available for our guests. The space is light and bright and has a feeling similar to the wider CFCCA venue, which is really nice.” – CityCo

With close public transport links (only 2 minutes from Shudehill Interchange, and 5 minutes from Victoria train station), CFCCA has been host to networking events, seminars, training courses, exhibitions, theatre performances, fashion shows and launches. Located in Manchester’s buzzing Northern Quarter our building has space to choose from with wheelchair access.

Our unique building is very flexible and can be adapted to fit the requirements of your event. We have high speed wi-fi access throughout the building and are equipped with projectors, sound systems, and any other technical bits you might need.

The income raised from venue hires supports our artistic programme. We’d be delighted to show you around our public gallery spaces during your visit – please ask a member of the team for more information.

We support local businesses and with so many fantastic eateries on our doorstep we are proud to deliver a diverse range of catering options – to suit all tastes! During breaks, guests could be refreshed and inspired by a tour of our Galleries, or why not add something cultural to your event with a creative workshop?

Our dedicated and experienced team will be more than happy to assist you in organising your event. CFCCA is a registered charity and the income generated by the hire of our spaces directly supports our work. Our pricing is competitive and we offer reduced rates for other registered charities and arts organisations.

Jasmine Suite

The Jasmine Suite is situated on our lower ground floor and is a purpose built space perfect for seminars or private functions. It has a capacity of 50 delegates, a projector and speakers in situ, and a kitchen area for your catering needs. The space is fully flexible with a removable partition wall that can be pulled across for breakout sessions or added privacy in meetings. More recently the Jasmine Suite has been used for small scale theatrical performances and as rehearsal space.
