What an amazing little space right in the middle of Manchester. Really helpful staff and so friendly. Very reasonably priced drinks too.

A bohemian melting pot of culture, music and stand up. One of the most committed theatre spaces in the city. Accessible to all and with an eclectic mix of drama, comedy and music, there is sure to be something to cater for any taste. Also worth checking their splinter groups that cater for specific strands for actor training.

I visited this quirky little venue inside Afflecks for the first time the other week- performances don't get much more intimate than this! I saw Once Upon a Year on Blackpool Sands. Students get concessions! I sat on one of the folding chairs which are on the back two rows- not the comfiest and it was a very long (but enjoyable) show!   There’s a little bar and a fish tank with those pink salamanders (axolotl?) inside. There are a couple of toilets pretty much back stage, haha. It was a great experience and I look forward to coming back.

Had lunch here during the week. Really lovely staff & owners; so welcoming and friendly. Falafel wrap was lovely and homemade banana cake was amazing! So cheap as well, definately worth a visit.

Extremely cheap and delicious food in a chilled-out, inclusive venue. Expect to chat to the owners and occasionally get set up to chat to other guests! There is also a small, fluffy dog who lives here.
