Colony Fabrica Launches with a Day of Coworking & Events

Colony Co-Working – Down Arrow

5 October 2023

On Thursday 28th of September we opened the doors to Colony Fabrica for the first time! Our brand new flexible workspace on the border of New Islington & Piccadilly East played host to a group of eager workers keen to try out the venue. The day was also attended by Manchester Young Professionals and in the evening, Fuse ran a creative presentation event!

Introducing Colony Fabrica:


We're still buzzing with excitement from the Launch Day Events of Colony Fabrica, and we have even more fantastic highlights to share with you. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who joined us for this incredible day of creativity, collaboration, and connection.

Before we dive into all the exciting details, let's take a quick look back. Colony made its entrance into the coworking scene back in 2017 when we opened our first space, Jactin House, right in the bustling centre of Ancoats. Since then, we've been on a mission to create innovative, community-focused workspaces that cater to everyone, from freelancers and startups to established businesses.

Fabrica Launch Day:

We were thrilled to have had some fantastic coworking members, remote workers, agents & event partners join us on this special occasion, making the day even more vibrant and dynamic. Among them were the Manchester Young Professionals—a group that represents the city's brightest talent and future leaders. It was a pleasure to host such a dynamic and forward-thinking group in our new space. The morning began with an open invitation to explore Colony Fabrica. Members and newcomers alike enjoyed a day of flexible, productive work in our premium coworking spaces. Whether you needed a private nook for a focused project or an inspiring environment for collaborative brainstorming, Fabrica offered it all.

Mid-morning brought us together for a Networking Brunch, where connections were forged, ideas sparked, and new friendships formed. It was a delightful opportunity to break bread (and avocado toast) with fellow professionals, and the buzz of conversations filled the room.

The afternoon saw a transition to our social drinks session—a wonderful way to relax, celebrate, and toast to the promising journey ahead.

Evening: Creative Inspiration with Fuse:

As the sun set on our Launch Day, we were honoured to host Fuse in our dedicated event space. Fuse, a platform for underrepresented creatives, known for its innovative presentations, delivered an unforgettable creative presentation event featuring the musician Samrai and designer Taxi Cab Industries. It was a spectacular showcase of creativity and innovation in the heart of Colony Fabrica.
