Have a nosey at the city’s iconic venue…there are brownies
Open Day – Thursday 21 July
With its vaulted arches and station clock, Manchester Central has been an essential part of the city’s urban landscape for over 140 years. It’s still an essential part of Manchester and now’s your chance to look round and see why.
It’s been a while since the last Open Day at Manchester Central – the building has transformed into a Nightingale Hospital and back again since then. But now it’s back to business – and attracting business to the city is one of the things Manchester Central does best.
Visitors can take a tour of the historic building, view a unique photo exhibition and meet the Manchester Central team.
This year there will also be a pop-up workspace so you can work from Manchester Central for the day.
Make sure you leave time to attend the events which explore what makes Manchester such a dynamic city. It’s all about head space and business space as our line-up shows.
Manchester Central has teamed up with Manchester Mind to deliver two sessions:
5 Ways to Wellbeing - 8.15am - 9.15am Experience effective ways to work the 5 Ways to Wellbeing into your day to day life – Connect, Be Active, Keep Learning, Give & Take Notice.
Introduction to Mindfulness - 8.15am - 9.15am Understand what mindfulness is, experience some breathing techniques and meditations, and how mindfulness as a tool can be learnt – For beginners
The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce – Manchester: A Destination for Business
9.30am – 11.30am
The fourth event of its kind, this panel session will bring together a range of business leaders from the GM community to discuss growth, trends, attracting business, and the importance of collaboration across our city.
Elevate Exchange: Innovation
1.30pm – 4.30pm
This event explores what it means to be an innovative business. Does it happen by accident or design? Is it all about new products or should we focus on innovative processes? You’ll hear from a range of entrepreneurs, investors and corporates.
However, if you just fancy a quick nosey around, a coffee and one of Manchester Central’s special homemade brownies or traybakes, then feel free to pop down anytime between 9am and 4pm on the day and one of the friendly team will happily show you around.
