Victoria Baths is looking for new trustees to help us on our restoration journey.

The Victoria Baths Trust has managed "Manchester’s Water Palace" on behalf of Manchester City Council since 2000.

We’re particularly looking for people with backgrounds in Marketing and HR.

The Trust is made up of 12 trustees and 11 members of staff 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.

2018 was a great year for us. Almost 34,000 people visited the baths, enjoying an eclectic programme of events.
From yoga festivals to art battles - this unique space has something for everyone.
