The post read: “We are pleased to announce that our courtyard area will remain open from 2nd October until the end of the year with six of our fantastic traders taking residency alongside ÖL’s brilliant microbrewery bar.

“You can access the courtyard from the gate in front of ÖL on Oxford Road and we look forward to seeing you in the Hatch courtyard soon.”

This update about the remaining and relocating food traders will come as welcome news to many, including traders who only found out about the closure the day before the announcement was made at the beginning of September.

There are only three traders not remaining who have not announced new locations. Dessert shop Crumbled is among them, but their Instagram bio says that a new location is due to be announced soon. DJ school DJ Gym are also yet announce their new home, and repair shop Tech Titans are also looking for a new space, according to their Instagram, but will be operating a click and collect service in the meantime.

What has happened to Hatch?

The venue announced at the beginning of September that it would be shutting at the end of the month as Stack, a leisure company based in the North East, would be taking over the premises from current owners, Bruntwood. The takeover meant that the venue would have to close for a year while the site was developed. The OL microbrewery and bar was the only Hatch trader announced at that time to be staying and remaining open.

Traders were only told about the closure the day before the announcement. A number of them were only trading out of Hatch at the time. Customers took to social media to show their shock and support for the traders, including Manchester night time economy advisor and Warehouse Project boss Sacha Lord, who said: “A month’s notice simply isn’t good enough. Very poor.”
