Owner description: Contact is Manchester's provocative and innovative performance venue situated in the heart of the city's busy Oxford Road Corridor (a short walk from both Manchester Museum and The Whitworth). We present professional theatre, dance, spoken word, music, cabaret, live art and comedy across our three spaces (300 seat auditorium, 70 seat studio theatre, and downstairs cabaret space) and in unusual locations throughout Greater Manchester. We also have a fantastic cafe - Contact Lounge - serving coffees and teas to take away, a wide range of wines, beers, and spirits, and a lunch menu created by our in-house caterers Samosa Shack offering delicious artisan street food inspired by Gujarati cuisine (vegetarian options available, food served Mon-Fri, 12am to 4pm). With Free WiFi, it's the perfect spot for meeting, chatting, and general lounging.

Reviewed 23 August 2011

Been here for about forty years but much changed over time and now a major centre for teaching, training and outreach with funding from the city council the Arts Council and many others. Been to various activities and always enjoyed ourselves. Look at the busy exciting and informative website.
