Iconic Club Sankeys Will Return To Manchester For A Massive 18-Hour Festival

If you can remember it, you weren’t there. So here’s your chance to relive it!

The famous Manchester club left its home at Beehive Mill in Ancoats for good at the start of 2017. But on Saturday (July 13) it will be back in the city to host a very special event at Bowlers Exhibition Centre.

Born in Ancoats 1994, the club was originally known as Sankeys Soap, due to its residence inside Beehive Mill which once was used to manufacture soap. After closing in 1998, the club was reopened and closed four times before shutting permanently in 2017, after the building was sold and turned into apartments.

Sankeys has since grown and spread across the world but owners say it has carried the soul of its beloved home city everywhere it’s gone. And they’re promising to use everything they’ve learned over the last 25 years to create a special anniversary Sankeys festival.
