Victoria Baths Trust

The Manchester Victoria Baths Trust was set up by local residents to pursue the aim of re-opening the Baths. The Trust is a registered charity (number 1026351) and a company limited by guarantee (number 2841292).

Could you make a splash?

We're looking for new trustees to help us on our restoration journey.

The Trust has managed the building on behalf of Manchester City Council since 2000.

We’re particularly looking for someone with a background in HR.

The Trust is made up of trustees, staff and volunteers who work together to deliver the vision for the Baths…“To establish Victoria Baths as a vibrant, international, heritage visitor attraction.”

We’re well on our way.

Over 30,000 people visit the baths each year, enjoying an eclectic programme of events. From yoga festivals to art battles, festive fairs to beer conventions - this unique space has something for everyone.
