Old Trafford is home to a strong and diverse community who play a big part in contributing to the vibrancy of the area. This sense of community is at the heart of our new £20 million development, Limelight.

Designed and developed as a partnership between Trafford Housing Trust and the local community, with support from both Trafford Council and the Homes and Communities Agency, Limelight aims to provide services that will improve health and wellbeing in Old Trafford.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Located on Shrewsbury Street and easily accessible, Limelight will bring together much-needed facilities, including a GP surgery, pharmacy and opticians, a modern library, hairdressers and children’s nursery, alongside high quality Extra Care accommodation and essential community services. A community café will create a focal point for the building and a space for local people to meet, eat and socialise.

Limelight’s main hall will be available to hire for events, such as weddings, exercise classes and conferences. There’s also an immersive 4D space, which can be used by groups and individuals to create a bespoke experience, allowing for colourful graphics and images to be projected onto the walls and floor with interactive features that can provide benefits for young children and people with dementia or learning difficulties.

Set to open this winter, the development has already had a big impact on the community including the new St Brides Church which was relocated and completely re-built as part of the redevelopment to offer state-of-the-art facilities for local groups to worship, meet and use.
