Community and neighbourhood are words that we use a lot to describe First Street, because that is exactly what the development has at its heart. The mix of offices, entertainment and amenities means there’s a diverse community of people, all doing different things at different times, and it is this which gives the place its character and colour; bringing work to life, and life to work, with a balance of the best places to eat, drink and play. Watch what we have on offer here.
The Lodge at First Street
The Lodge at First Street
A CAROUSEL OF WINTER THRILLS - 31.10.19-02.01.20.
Manchester’s newest neighbourhood is set to welcome a new winter programme of pop-ups, activations and events across the festive period from Thursday 31st October 2019.
First Street will be playing host to The Lodge, a 150-person Nordic winter tipi which will provide a range of quality Nordic-style beers and a mix of hot drinks, served alongside food such as the ever-popular Yorkshire pudding wraps.
Moving away from the traditional F&B-only offering found in other spaces around the city, The Lodge will also double up as a flexible event venue – and will provide craft, arts and sustainability-themed workshops, as well as wellness classes and family-focused events.
As a First Street member, stay tuned for events, offers, early access and news. See our latest event programme below:
