53two theatre is currently moving to a new location. In the meantime, 53two Studios are delighted to be able to bring you the city's only affordable, accessible and versatile studio space right in the heart of Manchester.


Using 5 floors of Old Colony House in the city centre, our studios range from intimate 200 square foot spaces to gargantuan 1800 square foot rehearsal spaces - including a ground floor accessible rehearsal/workshop space. We also boast a communal shared work space and private office spaces for individuals to hire by the hour. Entire production areas can be used for companies wishing to find a more permanent base for their project, offering a rehearsal room, green room, private kitchen and toilets. Alternatively, creatives can pop-in, sit in the communal Green Room area and read a play from the library, grab a coffee with colleagues or just pass the time before catching the train.


Actors can also take advantage of the 30 minute 'Actor MOT' rooms - got an audition? Want 30 minutes to warm up and get your s**t together? You can do that in the studios absolutely FREE!!


All spaces are rented at incredibly affordable prices with communal workspace from just £3. All hires go towards supporting the 53two charity, which, in turn, supports you the artists. So, whether you have rehearsals, casting, meetings or are just looking for a space to sit and work, 53two Studios can accommodate you!
