The Penthouse

An independent not for profit artist led work and project space in Manchester's Northern Quarter. A place for making, doing and sharing.

The Penthouse is the place to get your heads and hands dirty with ideas and new beginnings which fly from our rooftops directly into the city around us and beyond.

The Penthouse is the permanent studio base of Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp.

Noise Above Noise was described in a feature by The Wire as "Performance series Noise Above Noise elevates Manchester’s underground scene to the fifth floor of a tower block". Noise Above Noise runs as a bi monthly event at The Penthouse which will tour other artist led spaces in 2014.
