The Empty Space is a unique and custom-built theatre space, housed in an old industrial unit just five minutes from the main studio block at MediaCity. From inception in December 2016, the venue has developed into a popular performance space, hosting a variety of professional and amateur productions throughout the year (including GM Fringe), college graduate shows, comedy nights, music recitals, showcases, training and rehearsals, as well as being home to Footlights Theatre. “We wanted to build a place that everyone could use, to attend and perform in without feeling they had to wear their Sunday best, it’s a place for the next-door neighbour, the accomplished actor, someone just starting out and the established writer, the unheard of comedian, a place to feel like home. Step through the door and the magic begins” Jo Fisher, Director of Footlights Getting here Car – use postcode M50 2GL for sat nav.
