Antwerp Mansion

  • About
    What is the Mansion? Well it's the Wonka Factory style playground of Matt Bierrum (Mad Thinker), Simon Bullows (Mad Guts) and Andy Mansion (Mad Man).

    The Mansion was officially launched by Andy in October 2009 with a Halloween party, when it opened its doors as the Antwerp House Rock Club. Before then Andy worked tirelessly on saving the 1840 Victorian building from collapse (as well as greedy property developers who wanted to level it for horrible prefab flats) for over two years with his pals Steve, Ray, Gordon, Trevor & Tony.

    Many a band jammed in its dark cellars over that snowy winter, and during that time an army of creative folk, musicians, artists and Manchester party lovers (who quickly dubbed it "The Mansion"), helped to build the foundations of what quickly became a creative hub for Manchester talent. With the help of Mike Boote and his band Lostrites, lots of other great manchester artists performed and got involved, such as Caulbearers, Honeyfeet, Ten Bears and Age of Glass to name but a few.

    Now almost 2 years on, the Mansion continues to grow, renovate, and with your help, carve a small page in the Manchester history books.

    THE MANSION IS ONLY OPEN AS A BAR FOR THE FREE OPEN JAM NIGHT EVERY WEDNESDAY OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS WHILE WE RENOVATE 7-11pm

    It is still possible to hire the stage for band rehearsals at £5phr basic drum kit, bass amp, guitar amp & PA included :)

    The new ballroom is available for acoustic practice, as a gallery, for dance/circus practice or as a photography/video location too for only £5phr.

    The back wall is still an open graffitti wall, get in touch if youd like to paint or practice on it.
