Antwerp Mansion

Antwerp Mansion is a sprawling Victorian gothic house on the outskirts of Manchester. Having spent almost 10 years as one of Manchester's most popular nightclubs, it was time to move with the times and switch things up a bit. We now provide an inspiring, flexible and cost-effective location for photography or filming, for paranormal investigations, and for theatrical productions or art exhibitions.

The Basics

Our onsite secure car park can accommodate up to 17 cars, providing people don't mind getting blocked in. The streets around Antwerp Mansion can be a tight squeeze for very large vehicles but generally passable. The hotel next door has been open to providing additional parking for large productions when required in the past.

All our rooms have working electrical sockets and standard lighting. Most rooms are heated to a comfortable standard. We have some extension leads and lighting stands available to borrow.

We have emergency lighting; fire alarms and emergency exits throughout the main building. We can turn some of the emergency lighting off if given sufficient notice for private paranormal investigations.

There is a small kitchen area on the upper floor with tea and coffee facilities, microwave and fridge. For larger groups we recommend setting up a crew area in the gig room.

We have very basic bathroom facilities in the main building. We can provide access to a shower if needed after a messy shoot.

There are lots of props scattered around the building. Feel free to make use of any of them and if you have seen something online you can't find, please ask. Sometimes we know where things are.
