Co-working space for
creatives, digitals & startups

About us

Lofthouse is a place for creatives, digitals and startups to call home, collaborate and flourish. We offer monthly desk rental in an inspiring and secure environment at a very competitive rate.

It is funded and supported by the Friends of Stretford Public Hall. FoSPH is a charitable community enterprise run by its members. All working together, to improve the Public Hall and offer a focal point for the wider community of Stretford.

Co-work & collaborate…

Co-working offers unique opportunities to develop new and exciting projects with fellow creatives. We are also planning to use the space for events and workshops, not only benefiting the members of Lofthouse, but the wider community too.

…in stunning surroundings

The Stretford Public Hall was designed by N. Lofthouse (hence our name!) and completed in 1878 for local philanthropist, John Rylands. It is a truly inspiring building with high ceilings, open spaces and gothic detailing. It makes for a light and spacious place to work, and is already home to many established artists and creative businesses.

What’s included?

Awesome desk space

Handmade solid wood desktops, trestle legs and designer office chair make for a functional and stylish workspace.
