We are excited to announce our brand new, purpose-built broadcast-quality production studio within the venues Cobden suite, situated in the heart of the city.
The new initiative, in collaboration with Sterling Event Group, is the perfect space to pre-record and livestream from a professional TV broadcasting environment, giving clients the ultimate studio experience from start to finish.
Whether you’re looking to engage with audiences nationwide or across the globe, you can reach, inspire and entertain teams and customers with important business updates, training sessions or product launches, via broadcast-quality content in real-time, or you can even pre-record your content for streaming at a later date.
Clients looking to book this space will have access to a studio green-room and dressing rooms for presenters, and a selection of hospitality and catering packages.
Hair and make-up can be pre-booked, along with TV presenter coaching for anyone looking to hone their speaking skills. Free on-site car parking will be provided for those attending on the day, and for that extra exclusivity, the studio can be accessed via its own dedicated entrance.
Live streaming compatability to multiple event platforms with full branding capacity for the full virtual or hybrid event experience. ( Additional costs apply for platform host and support)

The Studio features a fully integrated set with customisable LED backdrops, lighting, full audio and vision equipment and an expert crew to create professional and engaging output.
The venue’s unrivalled internet connectivity – the result of a stand-alone fibre network that ensures no interruption of service and guaranteed speeds of up to 10Gbps – means that content can be live-streamed to thousands or recorded and edited for future distribution.
Who will I work with?
A dedicated technical expert from Sterling Event Group and a venue event manager will be on hand in the run up to and during the event to ensure everything runs smoothly and safely, in a COVID-secure environment.
If presenting is a new experience for you, or you wish to brush up on your skills, we have teamed up with a local, professional presenter training company ‘The Manchester Actors’ Platform’ (MAP), to offer short training courses.
Perfect for business professionals wanting to harness their confidence, skills and understanding of delivering a sound and engaging speech and/or presentation to a virtual audience through video conference calling. Ask a member of the team for more information.
In July 2021, we gave several of our city partners exclusive access the Studio, in what was the first of our MC Studio Sessions events.
