3 September 2020

Located at Depot Mayfield in Manchester’s Piccadilly area, Escape to Freight Island has seen a complete renovation to the venues outdoor area and expansion to accommodate a 600-capacity open air eating and drinking experience.

Social distancing has been designed from the ground up to provide a safe experience for staff and customers, with people allocated their own pre-booked table with app-based ordering and full table service.

From the opening on the 24th July, Showsec have been providing a team of staff with a focus on high levels of customer service throughout the different spaces which include street food and music, with popular acts performing, from Mr. Scuff to the weekly Amuse Bouche series- a mixture of drag and DJ sessions.

Chris Banks, Area Manager for Greater Manchester commented, “It’s great to be back working at Depot Mayfield since its temporary closure in March.

“The venue is an incredibly versatile space and we are pleased to be part of the team bringing this socially distanced dining concept to life.”

Next phases of the project are expected, but for the time being it is open Thursday evening and Friday to Sunday from midday to midnight.
