Platt Hall

Platt Hall is part of Manchester Art Gallery.

Platt Hall has stood on the corner of Platt Lane and Wilmslow Road for 250 years. In that time it has been many things - a home, a work camp, an art school, a police station. From 1947 to 2017 it was the Gallery of Costume, home to Manchester's world-class collection of fashion and dress. 

Now it is changing again. 'Platt Hall Inbetween' explores the past and the future to imagine new possibilities for this landmark building. We are collaborating with local residents and communities to transform Platt Hall into a vital and creative space at the heart of its local neighbourhood.

This site is a space to document, share, and continue the process of collectively re-imagining this unique piece of Manchester's history, ensuring its usefulness for years to come.
