The Bars History
In 2005 Sanctuary was born, using alternative super powers, Lisa, dedicated her life to making the most awesome rock venue in the North West! Sanctuary compromises of three floors playing the best Rock, Metal, Reggae, Ska, Alternative, Electro, Indie, Punk, theme tunes and Party Anthems. We host local, tribute, cover and internationally renounced bands every Friday and Saturday night. We also have club nights and quiz nights! Thousands of bands have played on the Sanctuary stage, including Exit state, Evil Scarecrow, HECK, UK subs and soon The Men who will be blamed for nothing!
We also pride ourselves on showcase up and coming bands and many special events in conjunction with record companies and management as well as showcasing amazing tribute bands and hosting charity nights. Resident DJ’s include DJ Jammie, playing the best Rock, Alternative and Party Anthems and also the host of the infamous club night WHERE’S MAVIS?, our legendary themed fancy dress All-Nighter on the last Friday of the month. Kev & Bobby, our amazing DJ Twosome play the best Rock and Metal every Saturday night! We also have a number of guest DJ’s so check out our latest events for details!
Every Sunday our quizmaster, Arron Riley hosts Sanctuary’s ‘Quiz on your face’ the ultimate geeky quiz full of fun and games, bonus and music rounds. It’s free to play, and there is a Gallon of beer to be won! if that’s not enough, we have cash to be won if you can crack ‘The Vault’
For the quaffers amongst us, we’ve got an awesome range of beers, ales, ciders and spirits, a whole menu of crazy bombs and lots of deals and offers and, of course, no night is complete without a random stranger doing a head count and buying a round of Cherry Bakewell shots for everyone at the bar.
From the first floor, where you can catch up with friends, sit down, relax, play a round of pool and have a few pints, to the second floor, where you can pump your fists, Party Hard and see the best Live music gigs to the third floor where you can catch your breath in peace and chat, Sanctuary has you covered.
