Catering partner – expressions of interest

Contact is a vibrant professional contemporary theatre and arts venue, with young people at the heart of everything we do.

From our iconic theatre situated on Oxford Road in central Manchester we deliver our outstanding year-round public programme. We commission, co-produce and present new work with and for young people with Manchester-based national and international organisations.

Our Arts Council England Lottery-funded £6.5m redevelopment project, to be completed in 2018, will make our venue more open, welcoming and accessible, with fantastic new performance and community spaces, equipped with the latest digital technologies for the next generation of audiences, artists and young people. Contact reaches over 100,000 people annually through shows, exhibitions and activities, and many more through national touring. Our co-productions have opened in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Bristol, and Contact's commissioned shows tour to venues and festivals nationwide.

Expressions of interest

In the first instance, please email expressing your interest by Monday 17 October 2016 stating, on no more than two sides of A4, why you are interested in working in partnership with us and your organisational/individual background and relevant experience.
