The Manchester-based organisation has announced that it’ll be leaving its “spiritual home” on Store Street.
The Warehouse Project is set to move from Store Street’s railway arches at the end of their 2018 season. In an online statement, WHP has explained that the decision to relocate is a “natural conclusion” following the evolution of the surrounding area of Manchester Piccadilly station.
The organisation returned to Store Street in 2014 and, as explained in its statement, the move was intended to be a short-term fixture. The statement reads: “… it was intended for one season only. Four years later we are calling time. There will be no return.”
“Store Street will forever be considered the spiritual home of The Warehouse Project by around a million people who have danced under those arches.” Currently, the team are in the process of “discovering new places to dance”.
The upcoming edition for WHP’s final series of nights at Store Street is set to kick off with an opening party on 22 September. The season will include an all-day party with Four Tet and his friends. Four Tet’s curated line-up is currently under wraps, though he’s revealed that he’ll be opening the party, on 6 October, with a back-to-back session with Ben UFO.
