A Substantial Historic Grade II Listed Former Theatre Building with Potential for Redevelopment (Subject to Obtaining All Necessary Consents). Offered with Vacant Possession


The property comprises a substantial, historic grade II listed former theatre with the potential to be redeveloped (subject to obtaining all necessary consents). The property was originally built as a home for the melodrama and seated circa 3,000 people when it first opened in 1901. It was renamed to the Hulme Hippodrome in 1905 when it became a music hall. The Beatles, Laurel & Hardy and Nina Simone are among stars who previously performed at the venue.




The property is situated in a predominantly residential area close to local shops and amenities. Numerous green open spaces are also within close proximity. Transport links are provided by Deansgate rail station.


At the request of the buyer, the sale can be by way of a company sale within an SPV - please refer to the legal pack for more details.
