A brand new Tenpin venue is opening at Manchester Printworks this week– featuring 12 bowling lanes,four table games, two bars, and one American-style restaurant.
The massive Withy Grove site is Tenpin’s 46th in the UK; spanning two floors.
Table tennis, pool, beer pong, shuffleboard will all be available to play – with a karaoke room open for wannabe singers.
The Manchester venue will also be the first Tenpin with fully-interactive lanes – as high-speed infrared cameras detect movement and project graphics into the room.
The venue’s new food menu, exclusive to Manchester, features burgers, hot dogs and sharers, all available alongside cocktails with an on-lane service.
Guests can enjoy a game of bowling, food and a drink from £15 per person, or a game of bowling and a drink from just £9 per person.
Paul Grayson, GM of the new venue said: “We’re really pleased to finally be able to reveal our incredible new Manchester venue to the city.
“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build something that Manchester will love and the team have created an incredible space where guests can drink, eat and play all under one roof.
“We’re excited to be the first Tenpin venue to have all interactive lanes, and we’ve also added beer pong, shuffleboard tables and a karaoke room to our range of entertainment options for the first time too.
“We want every person who visits us to feel like they could lose a whole day in here!”
Tenpin Manchester will be the bowling giant’s first new venue this year and will launch in line with government guidance.
According to owners, more than thirty new jobs will be created in local hospitality as a result.
Eight of the twelve lanes will open initially to ensure space for players, whilst guests are being asked to wear masks and their own shoes to bowl in (refraining from wearing open toes, heels or wedges).
Staff will be conducting regular cleaning of lanes, games and surfaces.
Tenpin Manchester welcomes guests for the first time on 18 September.
Opening hours will be Sunday to Wednesday from 10am until 1am, with a later closing time of 2.30am Thursday to Saturday.
Reservations can be made in advance via the website.
A look at the plans to turn historic Ancoats mill with rich musical heritage into new apartment complex
Hodder + Partners have just revealed new CGIs and a more detailed look at the plans for their redevelopment of the longstanding Brunswick Mill in Ancoats which is set to become a brand-new apartment complex.
The proposals to turn the once creative space with decades of musical heritage into a new residential site were revealed back in 2021 and approved within just a few months, despite having been met with plenty of resistance given its history and cultural significance.
Nevertheless, Northern company Big Red Construction recently kicked off the £50+ million renovation on behalf of developer Arrowsmith Investments and the apartments are projected to be finished in 2026.
With that in mind, the architectural designers Hodder have just released a new look at what Brunswick Mill is set to look like once completed:
Set to transform the historic industrial mill-turned-creative space and music studios on the edge of New Islington into 153 new apartments, ranging from one, two and three-bedroom residences, the redevelopment will be spread across two phases.
In line with designs by Hodder + Partners, the initial phase involves converting the existing mill building and the construction of new four and seven-storey elements to accommodate the remaining 127 homes on the Bradford Road plot in Ancoats.
Big Red Construction, who are also working on the Peelers Yard building for CERT Property and Myprotein founder Oliver Cookson, are expected to complete phase one by the first quarter of 2026.
Here’s another look at what living space people are already buying up:
Along with Hodder + Partners as architects, the project team also consists of HW Consultancy who are covering structural aspects, Manchester firm Clancy for mechanical and electrical considerations, as well as AM Pyro as fire engineers.
With property company Orlando Reid serving as estate agents for the project, 42 out of the 153 apartments have already been sold off-plan, with managing director Baljit Arora describing it as “an exciting period for all parties involved and for the city of Manchester”.
This is just the latest chapter in the continued regeneration of the Ancoats and the New Islington areas, which remain two of the most heavily re-developed areas in the city centre and Greater Manchester as a whole. You can see other hot properties in and around the region HERE.
