Manchester on the Move!
Change of address announcement. After over 25 years in our Castlefield home, Centre Screen are moving. We’ve bagged a new space in The Bonded Warehouse, @OldGranadaMCR, an exciting development that’s regenerating Manchester’s iconic Granada Studios and Bonded Warehouse into a digital and creative industry hub.
Established in 1986, Centre Screen moved into Eastgate, Castlefield, in 1992. A stone’s throw from the Haçienda, round the corner from Mick Hucknall’s bar and Tony Wilson’s flat, and across the street from Stock, Aitken & Waterman’s Hit Factory, the former warehouse was the ideal location for an emerging & energetic Mancunian media company. Current Company Directors Lisa O’Neill and Hayley Walsh began their Centre Screen careers in here in 2003 and 2005 respectively.
“We’ve a lot of history here, both in the office itself and in the surrounding area’s lively pubs and bars”, laughed Lisa and Hayley. “But we’re genuinely excited about what’s happening in the Old Granada Studios, about the potential opportunities and benefits we’ll enjoy in the heart of this new development, and we’re sure it will make an ideal home for the coming years – alongside our Second Home in Spitalfields, London.”
The new working space is not quite ready yet, so in the meantime, Centre Screen will be relocating temporarily to a workspace in the old Granada HQ. We’d like to reassure all our clients and colleagues that while the move is taking place there will be absolutely no disruption to the day-to-day business. And we look forward to seeing everyone soon in our new commercial home.
