The Warehouse Project

Ecstatic times await at this series of mega nights out, writes Kyle MacNeill


Time Out says

What is it? 

Sorry Fabric – if the UK still has a destination club, then this is it. Spin-off nights aside, WHP’s season runs from September to NYD and brings together 10,000 punters each night all under one roof raving to the most gigantic names in dance music.

Who is the owner of the Warehouse Project?

Started in 2006 by local nightlife overlord Sacha Lord, The Warehouse Project (or WHP) has become an iconic nocturnal institution. Rapidly relocating from Boddingtons Brewery to an air raid shelter under Manchester Piccadilly to Victoria Warehouse, it now calls huge industrial space Depot Mayfield its home.

Is it worth visiting?

If the idea of a big night out for you these days is a pub sesh (absolutely no judgement here) then WHP might be a bit much; students abound and there's no doubt Tom Wambsgans would describe Depot Mayfield as ludicrously capacious. But if you’re up for a rave you will be raving about for months after then it’s totally worth it.

Literally every big DJ you can think of has played or continues to play WHP (there’s no point in listing them, we mean everyone) so save up some readies and energy for a night at Depot that will definitely deliver the goods.

Anything I need to know?

Tickets sell insanely quickly so if you’re keen for a specific night, make sure to lock it in as soon as the season goes on sale. Prices are usually around the £50 mark so it’s not a cheap thrill – but the bang for your buck is good when you consider the lineup.

The door policy isn’t really an issue so just make sure you’re not too faded and avoid wearing footie shirts or activewear. Also if you’d like to spare some of your own financial liquidity then make sure to use one of the venue’s free water points.
