We don't know yet where the venue is for The warehouse Project, it hasn't yet been announced. So In A City tower may well start in 2007.

They're unlikely to use under the train station for all these big events, it's smaller capacity than when they were at Boddies they aint gonna want to go anywhere smaller.

They haven't announced it but we spotted the license application on here:
http://www.manchester.gov.uk/licensing/publicregister/citycentre.htm
(its gone now, what with being approved and all)

I'm still not sure if it affects the Piccadilly tower though. It can't be in the arches along store street (under the outdoor car park) as they look about as safe as a Baghdad bodyguard. There's the car park under the arch that crosses south, over store street, that some one said it was held in last time, but I never went so I'm not sure.

Ive got a very strong feeling that all of these events wont be in Store Street.
May be one or two will be they have to load in and load out every time they do an event so a regular event is out of the question.
I may be wrong but i think they are going for a more 'permanent' venue.

the email I recieved says....


Welcome back...

George Orwell declared Manchester 'the blood and guts of the nation'.

This was proved again when those doors opened and the Warehouse Project welcomed 100,000 people to party inside the legendary old brewery over the last twelve weeks of 2006.
Saturday 29th Sept is the date the day the project returns. Once again, it runs for those last three months and will feature a carefully crafted programme of music events to plunge Manchester back into crazy season.
Some of you will have seen this years venue in action during Beneath the Streets. Whilst slightly smaller than Boddingtons, the atmosphere, the sound and the feedback of this original World War II air-raid shelter pointed to the fact that we really had o do it here. The acoustics, low ceilings and brick archways mean that the issues we faced last year, wont be arise again.
Anyway... Enough rambling... let the rave do the talking this time. Take a look inside at what is programmed so far. Some very exciting things are still about to drop, so keep checking the shiny new website for updates.
For twelve weeks this city is ours


It was an offical mailing list message, so sounds pretty certain. I had presumed the wesite had the same text on it but obviously not.....

The event is actually under piccadilly just inside the tunnel.
On the gates there are notices up regarding the licence application.
Shouldn't affect Piccadilly Tower then surely, as it's not being know down is it?
