Box on the Docks - Opening 24th July

Welcome to Box on the Docks.

Box on the Docks surpassed all our expectations, the project rebuilt our community and supported two industries hit hard by Covid-19 – hospitality and the arts.

We saw thousands of visitors return back to MediaCityUK safely this summer as they enjoyed socially-distanced dining within our 30 art adorned sheds and greenhouses and with support from the Salford Culture and Place Partnership, to date 15 artists have had their work showcased at ‘Box on the Docks’,

Our summer phase of Box on the Docks has now closed but don't worry, we are teaming up with Hemingway Design again to present ‘Box on the Docks at Christmas’ which will see us work with even more artists who will create festive inspired designs for the self-contained pods. Dependent on local and national Government guidelines ‘Box on the Docks at Christmas’ will launch at the end of November.
