Could not have wished for a better venue
Venue Service

By Kirsty B, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 12 May 2019

We held our wedding here on 12th May 2019 and couldn’t have wished for a better venue. From our first viewing we knew straight away that this was the venue for us. Andi was brilliant throughout our planning process, arranging for us the view the place on numerous occasions and he set up the rooms spectacularly. We had catering from Lee @ Circle events which was enjoyed by all of our guests. We used the lounge & terrace along with the attic which gave us a really flexible element to our day. They went above and beyond regarding some technical elements and decoration. We had Gav, one of the DJ’s recommended by Andi, who accommodated our very specific music requests and kept people on the dance floor until the very end. Everything ran very smoothly on the day and the whole team was great. We would highly recommend this venue!

Lock 91 for our wedding party was fantastic!
Venue Service

By Lucy, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2019

We booked Lock 91 for our wedding party and it was fantastic! Alex was our contact person who was just brilliant; he was really helpful and re-assuring and we knew we were in good hands as soon as we had that first meeting. The whole team were so thorough and professional and they clearly knew what they were doing when it came to events and catering, etc. The venue itself is full of character and charm, with a quirky edge to it and in a great location. The food was all made by Lee at Circle Events, who likewise was very attentive and creative with the dishes and the food was absolutely delicious (we went for vegetarian catering). Everyone loved it and went home talking about the wonderful food and great venue! We were a party of about 70, and it began downstairs in the Lounge & Terrace with canapes and sandwiches, then soup and fish and chips served from outside. It was February but the sheltered terrace was surprisingly cosy and there was plenty of room for everyone to eat and drink and mingle, inside or out. Later we moved upstairs to the Attic for music and dancing, then more food later on and it just had a great atmosphere up there, everyone was in a great mood! I can only thank the staff of Lock 91 and Circle Events for providing the best day we could imagine and we will definitely be back in for a drink soon! I can thoroughly recommend them!

Everything was perfect, you are a brilliant venue!

Thank you so much for hosting our wedding on the 29th Dec. From our first visit, we knew you were the perfect venue for us. The whole process felt totally personal and bespoke. Everyone commented on the gorgeous characterful venue and how hard working and friendly the staff are. Everything was perfect; you are a brilliant venue and a brilliant team! Thanks for memories to cherish forever.

Relaxed Family affair
Venue Service

By Viv & Dave, on 09 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

When we decided to get married last year we both knew we wanted a relaxed affair but with big families and lots of friends we couldn’t have anywhere too small. Lock 91 was the perfect choice. We got married at Manchester Registry Office and our 70 day guests walked back to Lock 91 with us, loved that walk and the brilliant unposed photos our guests took. We then had an afternoon reception on the terrace with Circle Events delivering amazing BBQ food for our guests. We then moved up to the attic for our evening party which was fantastic! The staff were amazing and looked after us so well, the DJ was brilliant and our evening bacon butties went down a treat! Can’t tell you how many of our guests messaged us the next day to say how much fun they had and how much they loved the vibe of the venue. Can’t recommend this place and their amazing staff enough. A special thanks to Andi who made the organisation so easy and helped us every step of the way. Viv & Dave - June

We would highly recommend Lock 91 to anyone!
Venue Service

By Taren & Joe Newton, on 09 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

We held our wedding reception at Lock91 on 19/05/18 and can only say it was absolutely perfect! The process of planning before the wedding was very easy and relaxed and Andi made us confident that things would all go as we had planned and gave helpful suggestions to make things run smoothly. Andi liaised with all of the people taking the things to the venue (florist, balloons, our friend who made the cake) and the DJ and made sure nothing would go wrong on the day. The set up of the room on the day was beautiful and we didn’t have to do anything except drop off our decorations etc for Andi and the team to set up a couple of days earlier. Thank you so much Andi, you were fab! We had food provided by Circle Events which was amazing value for money, it was so tasty and there was lots! We had so many compliments on the food after the wedding and we were so happy we went for the informal sharing style food option which was just the vibe we wanted. Thank you Lee and Kristina! We would highly recommend Lock91 to anyone looking for a wedding reception venue, it was a beautiful setting for a totally amazing and unforgettable day! ?? Taren & Joe Newton ??

Faultless venue
Venue Service

By The Pollocks, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Feb 2018

Held our wedding party in the attic - faultless venue. The service was excellent, everything ran very smoothly. We provided our food and they kept it replenished and the tables were kept tidy all evening. All staff extremely helpful, wonderful evening. We had decorations which they helped put up, and could play our own playlist for the night. Great for when everyone was arriving then dancing all night long. Couldn't recommend enough!

What an amazing day we had
Venue Service

By Laura & Adam, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2017

What an amazing day we had. When searching for the perfect venue to hold our wedding we stumbled upon Lock 91 by chance and we are extremely grateful that we did. The location was perfect for us and our guests travelling from all over the country. As a laid back couple we wanted a venue that would be just that too. During the numerous meetings we had at the venue, Andy could not do enough for us. He listened to our suggestions and advised on things that would help make the day run as smoothly as it did. Nothing was too big or too small to ask for. He made it clear from day one that it was our day and we could have what we wanted. The whole team went above and beyond to ensure the day was what we wanted. The team on the night were great too. They did everything in their powers to make sure our guests were happy - and us of course. The way they work together is a credit to Andy who has trained his staff to be amazing. There weren't many people who had heard of the venue and some were a little bit dubious about it when we were trying to explain what it was like. EVERYONE commented on how amazing the venue was and how much of a great time they had. If you are looking for a venue that is different, quirky, laid back, comfortable then this is the venue for you. If you go and visit you won't be disappointed. Lock 91, you helped to make our wedding the most memorable experience and we can't thank you enough. We will definitely be recommending the venue and hopefully more of our friends will visit whilst in Manchester for the evening.

Best day of my life!
Venue Service

By John, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2017

Lock 91 is a great venue for a party. We hired out the attic for the night on our wedding day and would certainly recommend it. The staff at the venue were all really nice and helpful, they made sure we had everything we wanted on the day. The bar has a really good selection of beers, spirits, cocktails too. I’m a big music fan and the sound system at the venue was excellent. Plenty of mid range so you can blast out the tunes whilst still allowing people to have a conversation. Thanks to all the team for playing a part in the best day of my life.

Would definitely recommend!

We held our evening wedding reception in the Attic Room at Lock 91 on 23rd Sept 2017. Everything was easy to organise and the space is great for a party. We had a band and pprox. 100 people. All the staff were brilliant and a special call out to Andi who helped us organise everything. All the guests complimented the place and loved the cocktails. Thanks everyone for all your hard work and professionalism. Would definitely recommend.

Lock 91 ticked all those boxes.
Venue Service

By Joel & Hannah, on 09 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 28 May 2017

We wanted a space for our wedding reception venue that would have an intimate feel for our 45 guests, somewhere with a relaxed, informal feel but had excellent drinks and service. Somewhere were our guests could relax in an outdoor space in the afternoon and then throw some shapes on a dance floor as the party got started and the sun went down. Lock 91 ticked all those boxes. From planning to execution all the staff at Lock 91 did all they could to ensure our wedding reception was everything we wanted. The door staff and bartenders on the night were friendly and helpful and the catering company recommended by Lock 91, Circle Events & Weddings Manchester, were amazing. The quirky decor at the venue has a unique feel and we were free to add decorations and lanterns to give it a 'city wedding' feel. Our wedding reception and the party that followed is something we will never forget; Lock 91, thanks for being everything we were looking for in a venue!
