Sankeys to reopen

Nightclub has overcome ‘major adversities’, six months after closure

Popular Manchester nightclub Sankeys is to reopen, it has announced – just six months after the owner said it was closed indefinitely.

Boss David Vincent told The Mancunion earlier this year he planned to shut the legendary dance venue to focus on his namesake club in Ibiza, and that “if Sankeys does return it won’t be with me as it’s owner. I have done my time here.”

But a statement on the website on 14 November said, “We can officially announce that our spiritual home in Manchester overcame some major adversities and will be reopening soon.”

The club, in Beehive Mill, Ancoats, closed its doors 6 May this year after a 12-hour rave.

It is not clear when the club will officially open again.
