Having swapped print rolls for spring rolls, the Printworks entertainment complex in Manchester has a wide range of venues within its historical structure. Originally constructed in 1873, the Printworks operated as a newspaper printer until 1985, where it remained unused until the 1996 bomb attack on the city galvanized the redevelopment of the area. The venue has attracted celebrities and locals alike since it was opened in 2000 by Sir Alex Ferguson, of footballing fame, and singer Lionel Ritchie. Today, visitors can enjoy discos, dancing, and divas as well as the latest movies and a gargantuan array of culinary experiences.
- Boogie to lively Latin American music with a few old school classics thrown in for good measure at the Printworks, which features a wide range of live musical events.
- Find every flavour of food in the heart of Manchester whether you are seeking a little French flair, some Mexican zest, or just fish and chips.
- Enjoy the latest movie in 3-D while you digest your amazing meal and then (maybe later) work off those extra calories at the Virgin Gym housed in the Printworks’ complex.
The city of Manchester has an excellent public transport system and the Printworks is certainly included in all facets of it. The Metrolink tram system provides services throughout the city centre and beyond with two stops situated close to this entertainment complex. Local buses also service the area with stops just 10 minutes away from the Printworks. Of course, if you want to arrive in celebrity style, why not hire a fire engine or even the party boogie bus from Lady Jayne Limousines? What better way to explore the city George Orwell described as “the belly and guts of the Nation”? Let’s pretend he meant that positively.
