The best live entertainment experience, sorted.
World class, planet friendly and all in the heart of our local vibrant community, Co-op Live is the largest live entertainment venue in the UK, bringing some of the world’s greatest acts and events to Manchester.
As one of the most sustainable venues in Europe, Co-op Live is dedicated to giving back to both the people and planet, including donating over £1m annually to the Co-op Foundation to support national and local good causes.
Co-op Live is a joint venture between Oak View Group and City Football Group, in partnership with our naming rights partner Co-op, with a maximum capacity of 23,500.
Co-op Live is more than a live entertainment arena. With eight distinct event spaces across four levels, we have state of the art private hire locations suitable for conferences, formal and informal dinners, celebrations and awards, product launches, listening parties and more.
Each space reflects Manchester’s world-renowned vibrancy, with opportunity to brand if and as required. Bespoke food and beverage options are also available.
Rest assured when booking events at Co-op Live. From a football pitch and a half of solar panels to toilets that flush with rainwater, from locally sourced construction materials to zero waste to landfill, and from intelligent building controls to increasing biodiversity with trees and wildflowers around the arena. From a redesigned and sustainable walking route, to cycle spaces and more frequent Metrolink tram connections.
When it comes to putting people and planet first, we do more than any other venue in Europe. At Co-op Live, we’re for the here, the now and the long haul too.
