Revamp complete of Manchester’s Hit Factory chapel

Posted on by

A REVAMP has been completed of a 19th century chapel which was famously turned into recording studios in the 1980s before becoming office space.

The Castlefield Congressional Chapel in Manchester’s Deansgate was converted into a recording studio in the 80s and was where many of Stock Aitken & Waterman’s biggest hits were recorded.

Artists such as Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley and Bananarama all laid down tracks in the Grade-II listed chapel which was designed by local architect Edward Walters.

The building was converted in to offices after Pete Waterman sold the freehold in 2006 but after a period of being empty, the premises have been revamped by local developers M20 property who are now marking it as prime office space.

Peter Quinn, of M20, said: “The Chapel is one of the most recognisable buildings in Manchester and we’re very pleased to bring it back into use.”
