With our neighbouring suburban venue in Altrincham being received so incredibly well since opening last year, we’re delighted to announce our new opening in the heart of the city of Manchester. It’s such an iconic city in terms of music, film and all kinds of creative culture, and we think Everyman St John’s will form a fantastic part of that scene. We’re looking forward to entertaining everyone, from the community in and around Deansgate to the rest of the city.
