BIMM Manchester's Facilities

The music scene in Manchester is legendary, from the infamous ‘Judas!’ heckle during Bob Dylan’s 1966 tour to the Sex Pistols gig that spawned The Smiths, Joy Division and Factory Records. BIMM’s two campuses put you right at the centre of this musical heartland. 

Great Marlborough Street

The Great Marlborough Street building is an ultra-modern, 12,000ft2 facility with superb teaching spaces and a stunning common room – and the city’s biggest music venues just a stone’s throw away.

The campus’s contemporary interior was designed by the same architect responsible for The Hacienda, the iconic venue that inspired Manchester’s music revolution in the 80s and 90s. It’s just around the corner from BIMM – and other famous venues like Gorilla, the Ritz, Sound Control and the Academies are right on our doorstep too.

Bank Chambers

Our second site is in the Bank Chambers building. Opened in January 2016, two floors have been developed to extend our collection of exceptional teaching rooms and studios.

The building’s heavy and imposing appearance gives away its previous use as a bullion bank vault by the Bank of England.

Naturally then, BIMM Manchester is an exciting place to be, and there’s real opportunity here for top musical talent. But there’s hard work to be done too – so our facilities are geared up to get the very best out of you every day.

All of our teaching spaces are equipped with full PA systems and industry-quality backline equipment, including vintage and modern instruments for all specialisms. We also have a state-of-the-art production studio and Mac suite with all the latest recording equipment for our Music Production students.

Want to see these great facilities for yourself? Then join us at one of our monthly Open Days.

If for any reason you can’t attend an Open Day, you also have the option to book a personal tour of any of our colleges at a time and day that works best for you.

Or if you’ve decided then BIMM Birmingham is the place for you, there’s still time to join us for this academic year, starting in October 2018!
