Stockroom: A new learning and discovery space for Stockport

Closes 1 Aug 2021

Opened 5 Jul 2021


As town centres across the UK struggle to recover from the decline of High Street shopping and the huge economic shock of Covid-19, Stockport is pioneering an innovative plan to increase footfall and inspire a love of learning in children and adults.

Stockport has successfully bid for £14.5m of Government 'Future High Streets Fund' money to transform vacant retail units in the heart of our high street, Merseyway.

The Future High Streets Fund bid was for Stockroom.

Stockroom is an idea for a 21st century, universal learning and discovery space which could give the people of Stockport an opportunity to learn new skills, practice arts and crafts, enjoy live music and performances, use free services, and benefit from cutting-edge learning and IT facilities.

Now we need your help to create something special!

We want to talk with you about what uses Stockroom could have and how those uses could benefit you individually as well as our children, young people, adults and the town as a whole.

We really need your input to help us shape what Stockroom could be.
