Printworks SkyLights

Manchester’s favourite entertainment destination

Printworks recently underwent its first major refurbishment, becoming home to the largest digital ceiling in Europe, Printworks SkyLights. This expansive 900m2 ceiling spans the entire internal streets of Printworks, displaying extraordinary creative content and special effects from day to night. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including programmable sound and lighting, visitors can interact with Printworks SkyLights and compete on the separate large format interactive e-gaming screen.

Printworks is Manchester’s dedicated entertainment, eating and drinking destination, strategically located near landmarks including The Corn Exchange, Selfridges, and The Arndale, elevating its status as the perfect centralised platform for brands to engage with audiences.

Printworks is also home to our iconic large format, full motion digital screen, The Screen @ Printworks, an interactive entrance to Manchester’s premier leisure destination, with another large format portrait screen, Shudehill, situated above the Tenpin entrance.
