Hope Mill Theatre & Get Living invite you into the warmth of Mancunian homes with an immersive play in the New Maker Yards neighbourhood.

Mates is brought to MYP by Get Living, the award-winning neighbourhood operator launching another 500+ homes for rent this autumn between Salford and Manchester city centres; and Hope Mill Theatre, an independent theatre company known for its ambitious full-scale musicals.

Knock on apartment 114 at New Maker Yards this autumn and find yourself immersed in the lives of three mates, who will welcome you into their homes, introduce you to their friends, and get you in a party mood, in a way only Mancunians can.

Mates is an immersive play, and feel-good celebration of friendship that explores the warmth and community synonymous with Manchester, through the city’s culture, lifestyle, and love for a good house party.

You’ll meet Channique, Daniel, and Lauryn, three creative, outgoing neighbours who will stir you with stories about their day, show you how it feels to live as part of a community of friends, and dazzle you with the sights and sounds of Manchester.

Expect spoken word performance, comedy, and a guided meditation before you’re swept off to a house party next door, complete with a top techno DJ, hazy clubbing visuals and photo booth! Finish off the experience by enjoying a FREE pint or burger at the canal-side Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse.

If you want to experience the best of two cities, then New Maker Yards is the place to be. It is part of Middlewood Locks, a growing neighbourhood by the canal basin on the old Salford-Manchester border!
