We spoke to Harriet Webb, Producer at Rabble, to find out more about their space...

"Rabble’s set-up means you can do all your post-production in one place, bouncing from room to room, seeing different elements of your project happening simultaneously. The intimate nature of our set-up not only helps nurture creativity, but it means we’ve got a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. We love our clients to hang out here and get the most out of what we can offer them.

"With soft areas, meeting zones and a fully stocked bar we like to think we’ve brought the best of Soho to central Manchester."

Think your workspace is wonderful?

Workplaces across the North are changing. For many, the physical changes are to encourage a cultural change, with more pressure being put on businesses to consider the wellbeing of employees. Whether your office has recently been refurbished, it's beautifully designed, or it's just vastly different from a typical office, we want to hear from you.
