Full Description
  • A truly Historical venue, Whitworth Hall hosts many of The University’s prestigious events, including summer graduation. Seated at the heart of The University of Manchester’s gothic Old Quadrangle, The Hall was designed by Paul Waterhouse and named after Mancunian industrialist, Sir Joseph Whitworth, who bequeathed much of his fortune to fund public developments in Manchester. Featuring wooden panelling, and stained glass windows the Whitworth Hall is a true representation of not just the historical grandeur of The University of Manchester, but also the city itself. Adjacent to Whitworth Hall is the equally impressive Christies Bistro; formerly the University's Science Library it retains much of its historical character - featuring walls lined with bookcases, marble busts and portraits of the University's former Vice-Chancellors. It's a great additional space to make use of, whether this be for a drinks reception or simply as some additional space for evening guests. Our wedding service caters for celebrations varying in size from an intimate wedding for close family and friends, up to a large celebration. We are fully licensed for ceremonies as well, so are able to offer the whole day under one roof. Don't hesitate to get in touch with any queries, and we'll be delighted to welcome you to visit the venues and learn more about your plans for your special day!
