AWOL Studios are attempting to solve many of the issues faced by Cultural Industries in Greater Manchester by providing flexible workspaces in a convenient location and at realistic prices. AWOL Studios avoids the overheads of most agencies and property management companies by avoiding paying for  corporate agents to manage the property, expensive advertising, or hiring city center offices. That way the savings can be passed directly onto you.
