This month has seen the opening of an excellent new unique event space in Salford. The Foundry Film Studios has a capacity of 600 across two studios, a mezzanine loft and a number of smaller rooms. As soon as we walked in and saw the blank canvas we could instantly picture the array of events that we could hold here, ranging from product launches, networking events, conferences and private parties.
MD James Shannon and Producer Madeline Penfold both manage the facility and wanted to create a very welcoming feeling throughout the studio. We definitely got that vibe when James proudly showed us around the 8,000 sq ft venue earlier on this month. We loved how light and spacious the whole space was.
The venue includes two large studios designed primarily for the production of TV and advertising and photo shoots, but they are also promoting it as an events space. The studios are so versatile and can be completely re-vamped for the purpose required.
What we loved about this venue:
With a capacity of 600, the venue was also built with events in mind and even has its own in-house (stocked) bar. Studio 2 is the perfect blank canvas for events with a 5-meter high infinity cove, impressively one of the largest in the North West. If you are looking for a bit more of a chilled vibe for your event then you can take over Studio 1 which has a mezzanine level where you can furnish it with comfy chairs and beanbags.
We’re very excited for the launch party on the 27th October – it’s going to be very “dark”!
