Sir Howard Bernstein has given Victoria Baths his seal of approval and a profile boost by hosting an event in the Town Hall for Manchester business leaders. The event was initiated by deputy council leader Bernard Priest who is a big supporter of Victoria Baths.

Sir Howard says: “Manchester is continuing to grow and develop thanks to individuals, groups and businesses that passionately believe in the city. Victoria Baths Trust is an outstanding example of how much can be achieved when a community gets behind a project and won’t give up. They have raised £5m to date and ensured that Victoria Baths is preserved. The next step will be even more beneficial – the re-opening of the Turkish Baths will provide a unique offer to Manchester residents and visitors and will contribute to the city’s reputation as a world class destination. I fully support the Trust in their plans for Restoration Phase 2.”
