Win a Stunning Stephen Millership Print of Manchester’s Iconic Cornerhouse.

Stephen Millership is a Manchester based freelance Illustrator who specialises in artwork influenced by the golden age of the travel poster, but with a modern twist. 


Stephen’s work has been used by the National Trust and many other Museums and Galleries including the London Transport Museum and the National Museum of Scotland. He has also illustrated books for publishers such as Ladybird Books and Thames and Hudson. His other clients include Bespoke Hotels, The Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester and the National Museum of Football.

MancMade are big fans of his work and were beyond chuffed when Stephen offered his unique take on Manchester’s iconic Cornerhouse (below) as a prize in this giveaway.



Although I was never a regular visitor to the Cornerhouse it was a part my Manchester “cultural comfort blanket” back in the 80’s and early 90’s. A venue that offered me the chance to experience a little bit of culture and the odd foreign film, whilst still being near enough to the Peveril of the Peak that I could sink a few pints of Guiness in there before getting the bus home.

Although it was a little poncey, (Yes; It was!!) I always felt the Cornerhouse still had uniquely Mancunian DNA at its core and I did feel a real tinge of sadness when it closed its doors for the last time in 2015.

Stephen’s print reminds me of a time when my world was getting bigger and the Guinness was a lot cheaper and every time I look at it I can’t help but get a big fat smile on my face.

Stephen’s Cornerhouse art print measures 500mm x 400mm and will be supplied unframed. It will be signed by Stephen.

Please visit Stephen Millership’s site to find out more about him and his work or if you wish to buy some of his prints you can visit the Stephen Millership Redbubble Online Shop.

    My favourite building in Manchester! I love the Cornerhouse – so sad it isn’t open any more but this is a fabulous tribute and I’d love to own it.

  2. Joanne Beale

    I would love to win because even though I don’t come from Manchester these prints are fantastic and would look great in my house

  3. Sally Kershaw

    This brings back memories! I met David Mach, the sculptor at the Cornerhouse many, many years ago. We had a great conversation and I tried to persuade him to give me one of the teddy bears he was making a sculpture with – to no avail! I loved his exhibition, the humour in his work was so apparent!

  4. Lisa Hilton

    I often used to go to the Cornerhouse a lot when I was I a student and I also worked at the Palace Theatre. Now I live in London, so this would be great reminder of my home town.

  5. Jo Carroll

    I love Stephen Millership’s work and the retro poster styling he uses. This one of the ‘Cornerhouse’ may just be his best yet?

  6. Claire Robinson

    Cornerhouse opened when I began my undergraduate degree at MMU. It was my spiritual home. Much as I love HOME, there is always a special place in my heart for Cornerhouse.

  7. Susan B

    I love art and often browse websites coveting pieces I find. I cannot afford to buy, though, so the opportunity to win such a fab print is wonderful. Thank you.

  8. Mary H

    HIs work is fantastic. My partner lived in Manchester for many years and has fond memories (not dissimilar to yours) of the Cornerhouse. I’d love to surprise him with this ace print.
