The museum’s conference and meeting facilities are within a magnificently restored historic Edwardian Pump House. By booking an event at the People’s History Museum (PHM) you are truly benefitting from meeting in a genuinely inspirational museum that is situated in the heart of the Manchester’s city centre Spinningfields.  Also the PHM is an independent charitable museum and all surplus from the hire of our spaces goes towards supporting the museum’s activities.

We have three flexible spaces with capacity from 10 to 200 people.  These can be hired for meetings, conferences, workshops, presentations, drinks receptions, evening dining and wedding ceremonies and receptions.
