St Philip's Church
St. Philips Church makes a brilliant music venue. It is just off Chapel Street, close to Islington Mill and only a short walk from Manchester city center.
The church often plays hosts to medium sized bands for gigs and festivals. I have been here during Sounds From The Other City and the music echoing around the walls has created a brilliant atmosphere. You can choose to sit in the peues or head upstairs for a fantastic view of the bands playing.
When I have been they had a small stall selling drinks towards the back and there is a toilet near he entrance. Be warned though, if it’s busy there will be a queue.
If you get a chance then head over to St Philips church for a gig or an event. Watching a band play in a large church has a very different atmosphere to a gig in a small venue.
