Manchester is often called the creative capital of the North, which isn’t a surprise when you think of the nearly 10,000 creative businesses that have set up camp here. From MediaCity to successful musicians such as The Smiths, Oasis and Bugzy Malone, this is just part of the landscape in Manchester, making it the perfect home for young creatives.

Manchester is home to not one, but two ACC centres on Oxford Street and Hulme Street, 16 minutes walk from each other. Our Oxford Street centre hosts our music students and our Hulme Street centre is where you’ll find games and media and each one is dedicated to the disciplines they house.

Mark Acton
ACC Manchester Centre Manager

I’m Mark. I have a long history in music, including writing, recording and performing. I’ve always loved all forms of creativity and learning about new things.

I became the Head of Centre in Manchester because I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to improve the working lives of our staff and the experience of our students. To do well in an education career, you have to really care about people and want them to succeed. Solving problems, engaging with and inspiring people are the things that motivate and energise me. We have fantastic, talented students and staff in Manchester. It is a privilege to do this job and work with so many incredible people.
