Department Creative

Engaging spaces for the creators, storytellers and visionaries.

Creativity doesn’t work solely behind a desk – discover content studios, podcasting facilities and cultural experiences to inspire. No membership required.

Space to create

Photography and content studio available to hire in Department Bonded Warehouse for the hour, half day or full day.

The iconic studios were ITV Granada’s HQ until 2013. The world-class TV & film stages are now operated by Manchester Studios to support broadcasting near and far.

Based within Department’s community, the award-winning Reform Radio broadcast live from Bonded Warehouse, and provide access to fully equipped podcasting studios.

A versatile space to suit any requirement, but bodes well for smaller productions, brand showcases and private events.
