The popular nightlife event has been cancelled for this year.
Confirming the news on their social media channels just today, The Warehouse Project has been officially cancelled for 2020 and is not set to return until 2021. The much-loved club night, which runs seasonally, has become an institution since its 2006 inception, spawning sister event Parklife in 2013 as a result of its huge success.
The announcement read: “Since 2006 The Warehouse Project has been an annual fixture in the Manchester calendar. We’ll be taking a break for 2020 but plans are well underway for an epic return in 2021.
“Parklife 2021 revealed very soon. Please stay tuned for updates.”
The cancellation is just the latest among a huge string across the nightlife industry, which has been hit particularly hard as a result of social distancing regulations – which currently do not allow people to gather in groups of more than six or stand up/dance in a venue. Many businesses have been forced to adapt to the new climate, hosting events with limited capacities where guests are required to remain seated with table service in place.
Night Time Economy Advisor Sacha Lord, co-founder of TWP and Parklife, launched United We Stream during the UK lockdown – an online charity event which raised vital funds to help Manchester’s nightlife venues survive the lengthy closures. The charity events saw the likes of Paul Oakenfold, the legendary Haçienda and a number of TWP resident DJs hosting performances for the people of Manchester and beyond.
