Auditorium Brings New Creative Space to Manchester
Article date: Mon, 24 Mar 2014 10:53 GMTUKFast is set to launch its new auditorium, making the space available free of charge for businesses, schools and networking groups across the city. The 300-seat auditorium space, equipped with 100 sq ft digital screen and stage and theatre lighting was opened earlier in the year by the Manchester Camerata who use the space to rehearse performances, but only now is set to become a key Manchester location. Lawrence Jones, UKFast CEO said: "There's been a lot of speculation about the Tomorrow Project, but in that time we have built four data centres and a new HQ. This is the project for now; it's the Today Project for Manchester, now. "We've always done things a little differently and that's what we are doing here. We're a business that wants to collaborate and help others whether that's by connecting people over the internet or by shaking hands. "It is top specification spaces like this that not only help SMEs flourish, but also attract the huge global firms like Google and Facebook - we've already had Google showing an interest in UKFast." The auditorium is accompanied by a 2,500 sq ft event area with a 40ft bar and VIP lounge facilities, making it perfect not only for presentations and seminars, but also awards nights and networking events. Chris Marsh, UKFast's director of partner development said: "I've been meeting people from across the city and finding out what they need from a space like this and we're excited to already have people signed up to make use of the amazing space - from the Manchester Camerata, to technical coding clubs. "It's exciting to finally put the space out there and see how people and businesses from across the city will make use of it." Anyone interested in using the space should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
