The National Football Museum - Manchester

Urbis Building Cathedral Gardens Manchester, Manchester, M4 3BG

Venue Introduction

Our stunning architecture, state of the art galleries and great flexible spaces make The National Football Museum the perfect venue for your event.

Whether you are organising a gala dinner, reception, meeting, private party or launch we can offer a unique experience that will make your event stand out.

With our city centre location we’re are also a number one choice for Christmas parties!

From gala dinners to breakfast meetings, product launches to conferences, receptions to summer parties, we are here to help.

The National Football Museum Hospitality team have great expertise in creating bespoke events of all styles and sizes. Utilised alongside our technical knowhow and the unique space of the museum, we can help you create the most amazing events.

You don’t have to be a football fan to appreciate the facilities on offer as the space is so versatile it can accommodate anything from car launches to stand up receptions, or full awards dinners to name but a few (we even offer wedding receptions). The Hall of Fame is only available during the evening as the Museum is open during the day, but with our approved suppliers we can turn the space around very quickly to accommodate most event requirements. However The Suite, with its own dedicated event entrance, is available throughout the day and evening.

Additional Notes:

We offer two separate spaces at the museum for guests to hire –

The Suite

The Suite is at the top of the museum and boasts stunning views over the city. It is available to hire both in the day and evening. It is ideal for breakfast meetings, conferences, team building and away days with the unique opportunity to tie in activities in the museum itself. However, the space also works brilliantly for private dining, whether for a corporate or private celebration. Although private areas might be available in other areas of the city, exclusive use of a dedicated venue with its own entrance and such stunning views, is truly unique.

The Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame is a light, flexible and contemporary space able to accommodate up to 250 for dinner or 500 for receptions (and we now offer wedding receptions). Combine this with state of the art technology – inbuilt colour wash lighting, a suspended LED ellipse and plasma screens that can be programmed to display corporate logos, wording and presentations – and you have the perfect setting for a host of events.

The Hall of Fame will be updated yearly and will feature nationally recognised legends – an inspiration for all attendees. It is a unique space that can be accessed through a turnstile or private entrance dependent on the style of event being held.

Unusually for a city centre there is also outside space that can be used for drinks receptions in the summer months, allowing even more flexibility for events at the museum. Should you require an interactive start to your event please ask for details of hiring Penalty Shootout and goalkeeping activities; we will be delighted to discuss how this can be incorporated into your evening.

The Suite

The Suite is now available during the day for breakfast meetings, team building, away days and private lunches. Located on the top floor of the Museum, The Suite offers stunning views across the city. With a wide variety of catering packages available we can tailor your day to suit any of your requirements.
