The Centre is re-opening on 1st September!

Open sign

The Coronavirus outbreak means Manchester Buddhist Centre has been closed as a building since March.  We’re really looking forward to welcoming  people back in our beautiful building!

With so much uncertainty, however, we’ve made the decision to open quite slowly, starting from just one day a week.

Open every Tuesday, 11 am – 3 pm

Starting from 1st September, we’ll be opening every Tuesday from 11 am – 3 pm.  We’ll review this arrangement on 22nd September

Our lovely shop will be open and we’ll  be offering our usual lunchtime led meditation on Tuesdays in person, as well as on Zoom. Due to government restrictions, they’ll be a limitation of twelve people, to protect everyone’s safety.

We are also asking that if you’d like to attend the led meditation, then please book. Bookings will open for these classes very soon.

Still mostly online for the moment

We are committed to continuing to share our teachings, practices and friendly connections during this challenging period, and our classes, courses and other events are currently available online through Zoom and sometimes YouTube.  We’re likely to continue some online events and classes beyond September, gradually offering more and more events that can be accessed both online and in-person.

Our friends at Bodywise on the Centre’s second floor have also been closed to visitors, and moved many of their activities online in March. More information from Bodywise website. The lovely Earth Café in our basement is still closed.

Staying in touch

If anything changes to an event or course that you have booked on, we will be in touch by email. We’re responding to emails at, but we’re afraid we are not able to answer phone calls while we’re closed. Please check the website frequently, and join our mailing list to stay up to date with new online events, and news on reopening.
