Europe’s largest digital ceiling inside Manchester’s entertainment destination

In 2023, Printworks 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 dynamic creative content and special effects from day to night. The full motion screen is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including DeepScreen® and programmable sound and lighting, allowing your audience to interact with Printworks SkyLights while competing on the separate large format interactive e-gaming screen.

Printworks is Manchester’s dedicated entertainment, eating, and drinking destination, with an annual footfall of 8 million and home to brands such as Wagamama’s, Nando’s, and Vue Cinema. The venue is near landmarks, including The Corn Exchange, Selfridges, and The Arndale, elevating its status as the perfect central destination for your brand to engage with a large and varied audience.
