In the run up to St Patrick’s Day, Manchester’s entertainment complex The Printworks is hosting a series of offers and events with live music, whiskey tasting and more.

With more than 15 restaurants, including the Irish-themed O’Neills and Waxy O’Connor’s there’s plenty available.  And there are lots of promotions on offer.

Plus, on Sunday 17 March, The Pump Yard at The Printworks will be adorned with balloon arches and totems in the colours of the Irish Flag whilst Jimmy Doherty from The Velvet Tinkers performs.
