Mayfield offering free workspace to creatives

Creative entrepreneurs are being invited to apply for free studio and office space in Manchester’s historic Mayfield area behind Piccadilly train station.

The rent-free space is available for start-up businesses to work on a specific idea or product for a period of 12 months.

Mayfield in Manchester was once a cutting edge place of technical innovation. It was where Thomas Hoyle pushed the boundaries of printing colours onto fabric in the 1800s, and where visitors to his works marvelled at the sight of a mile of calico being perfectly printed in a single hour. This was industrial achievement through technology.

Mayfield & Co. is bringing those days of innovation back to the site. The new co-working space will be a home for the next generation of technical innovators to shape their futures – and the future of Mayfield.

U+I - the regeneration company behind the scheme - is offering space for up to 15 people at the new co-working space, which is set to open in late October. Apply below.
