Covid-19 Update

The health and wellbeing of our staff, visitors and artists is our top priority. That’s why, following the government guidance concerning the spread of the coronavirus, Waterside is closed. At this stage we are unable to confirm when we will reopen.

We are very much looking forward to the day when we can safely welcome back audiences into our venue for live events. In the meantime, all of the team at Waterside are working remotely, waiting in the wings to welcome our audiences and artists back as soon as it is safe to do so.


If you are able, please support arts and culture at your local venue by donating to Waterside’s Waiting in the Wings campaign. This will enormously help the venue, but also artists and important cultural projects across Greater Manchester.

You can donate quickly and easily here using the online portal below managed by Trafford Council.

We are humbled by the support and kind words we've received from everyone during this challenging time. Thank you for your ongoing support.
