You can walk or cycle to EventCity, making these the most sustainable modes of transport on offer. EventCity is connected to the rest of TraffordCity by high-quality pedestrian networks of pathways and cycle paths with traffic-controlled crossing points. Our venue is on the Bridgewater canal - a route away from busy and congested roads, about 5 miles from Manchester City Centre.

Access & Loading

When EventCity was being built, we listened to prospective clients and event organisers. We understand you don’t like having a set time to load and unload which is why we don’t make you do that. We allow you unlimited access close to your hall to make life easier for you. You’ll be happy to know that – unusually among U.K. venues – you can drive right into your hall! Our extremely sturdy, hardwearing floor can bear 50 kN2 of weight so feel free to book and then drive in in an articulated lorry, large vessel, caravan or tank.
