Make Events

Key Sponsor

We are delighted to announce Make Events as our Key Sponsor for the third year. 

Make Events is the go-to corporate event organiser for the North West’s household names, from Kellogg’s to Virgin. Whether you want to reward an internal team, motivate a sales force or simply kick your heels up and celebrate success, we have the expertise to bring your event ideas to life.

Where Make Events go the extra mile is to think about every step your audience makes; from anticipating your event, arriving at the venue, dropping off their coat, nipping back for seconds from the buffet, getting really inspired by what they’ve seen and heard, deciding they really really love their colleagues and putting what they’ve learnt into practice the next day.

And then we make every moment count. By adding creative flourishes you haven’t yet imagined and doing it with superhuman levels of efficiency.

Make Events. Create the ultimate experience.

gaucho logo in black - the word gaucho

Gaucho believes that every guest should experience a little bit of Argentine life. Its food, its wine, its culture, and most importantly, the passion of the people.

Gaucho Manchester is a majestic, multi-level restaurant and cocktail bar set inside an old Methodist Church.

With the original organ at the helm, this is a venue steeped in history. From the open kitchen to the Art Deco glass panelled ceiling, it’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

Pull up a pew on the stage area and enjoy the sight of glittering chandeliers, or try the mezzanine for a bird’s eye view of the kitchen. After you’ve eaten, soak up the atmosphere with a drink in the relaxed bar area.

Gaucho is sponsoring the 2017 Brand Champion Award. Learn more about Gaucho here

The Christie

Charity Partner

The Christie is a world leading cancer hospital and cancer research centre. We treat approximately 44,000 patients each year, mainly from across Manchester and Cheshire; however, as a national specialist for a number of rare and difficult to treat cancers, around 26% of our patients are referred to us from all areas of the UK.

The aim of The Christie charity is to go above and beyond the scope of the NHS and to raise funds for vital cancer research programmes, new treatment facilities and state of the art medical equipment, as well as funding all those extra special support services that help patients to cope with the impact of cancer on their daily lives. This includes services such as a wig salon, psycho-oncology support, a cancer information centre, art therapy and various complementary therapies such as massages and acupuncture.

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to continually improving their experience, offering the best treatment and care, and pioneering research breakthroughs into various cancers. We simply could not achieve this without the generosity of our supporters.
