Manchester Conference Centre
The Cotton Theatre is based near to the entrance of The Manchester Conference Centre which was built to appeal to the corporate market; the architecture is very modern, and all of its facilities are cutting-edge.
The complex on Sackville Street was built in 1991, using the latest technology at the time. The lower foyer features one of the few Foucaults Pendulums in the UK. As is common for Foucault pendulums that remain in use, it is now pushed by an electro magnet. A brass plate tells the history of the pendulum and describes the effect in detail.
