Islington Mill – Creative arts hub

Salfordians will roll their eyes at Islington Mill being slotted into a guide to Manchester – Salford is, after all, a different city. However, as the two are such close neighbours and the mill is an easy walk from Manchester centre, it deserves attention from culture-loving visitors.

Islington Mill is one of the region’s many abandoned industrial hubs-turned-creative-spaces, but with its inventive and eye-catching events list it deserves a special mention.

Check the listings when you’re in town and you may stumble across anything from art exhibitions and cult film showings to low-key gigs from international and prolific artists such as Peaches, Bo Ningen and Gang of Four.

You may even get to attend a full-blown festival – the mill is the hub of May’s much-celebrated day-long music spree, Sounds from the Other City.

Whenever you visit, Islington Mill will throw a curveball to knock you out of your Manchester comfort zone and into a night that will never blend with another.
