This disused railway station behind Manchester Piccadilly is one of the city's rawest and most unique venues. Built at the turn of the 20th century, the station last saw a passenger train in 1960 and has stood empty since the 1970s as a ghostly relic of another time.
In July 2013 the empty building was given a new lease of life when it was used as the backdrop for Massive Attack's collaboration with filmmaker Adam Curtis for Manchester International Festival, and now looks set to continue life as an events space hosting sporting, live music and club events. We're keeping our eyes peeled for the opening date some time in late 2013!
