Earlier this week, popular Rusholme nightclub ‘Antwerp Mansion’ revealed on Facebook that they will be twinning with a sister venue this Halloween.
The club is currently only licensed to open until 11pm due to council regulations, and often partners with other venues to continue events later into the night.
Their Halloween event, ‘Deathtrap Disco’, will be twinned with a new sister venue — the location of which is yet to be announced.
They have also reached out to young artists offering paid positions to decorate this sister venue to the same standards as the Mansion.
Speaking to The Tab, the owner, Andy Barnfield stated that it had become difficult to “fit all [their] arts events and music into one venue due to the restrictions placed on [them] by the council.”
He added that, given the time restrictions, he’d been looking for a sister venue for sometime now, but it had taken time to find one “interesting” enough to exist alongside the infamous Antwerp.
Organisers have been asking for “graffiti artists and lovers of décor” to help them with new ideas.
The aim of this is to “support young independent emerging artists”, the Arts Coordinator Lizzie stated.
