You can easily find us in The Printworks on Withy Grove, just on the corner of Corporation Street, with Manchester Victoria train station only a 3 minute walk away. The Printworks as we now know it was originally erected as Withy Grove Printing House back in 1873. It ran successfully as a newspaper printers for over 100 years, producing publications such as the Manchester Evening Chronicle and the Daily Mirror until it was closed in 1985. The building lay dormant for over ten years, and it was in 1996, that the IRA attack in Manchester City Centre spurred on a redevelopment process for the area now known as Exchange Square. On the 9th November 2000, Sir Alex Ferguson and Lionel Richie were the guest celebrities who reopened the hugely transformed area to the public, and since then A-listers have continued to pass through it’s doors. Everyone from local Corrie stars, to Kylie Minogue, David Beckham and Will Smith… The Printworks continues to be a hot spot in Manchester!

Closeby, you’ll find The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan, as well as a few attractions, such as the The National Football Museum, Exchange Square, MEN Arena, Deansgate Locks, VUE Cinema, Arndale Centre, and Piccadilly Gardens.
