With England firmly within the third national lockdown amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the new year may have felt a little like a continuation of the previous one for many, but Manchester’s leading entertainment complex is looking to “brush away the 2020 blues”.
Printworks has announced the launch of a new campaign this month that’s focusing on “better times ahead” in 2021, and there’s even an exciting competition to go along with it.
Whether it’s spending more time with the family, choosing healthier eating habits, or even just making a promise to stay exactly the way you are, most of us like to set a goal or two at the beginning of a new year, and Printworks is asking Greater Manchester residents to share those resolutions with them for a chance be featured on a digital wall live on the Printworks’ website.
And that’s not all either.
Sharing your resolution this year also means you could be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher to treat yourself with when Printworks’ doors are back open too.
With over nineteen venues inside the iconic entertainment venue – including several big-name food and drink outlets, as well as various leisure hangouts, from cinema to bowling and more – there’s plenty of choice to spend your winnings on.
The ultimate post-lockdown day out in the city centre is now up for grabs.
Speaking on the launch of the new competition, Adam Jackson – Marketing Manager at Printworks – said: “We know 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, and it’s likely we’ll all be going through these tough times for a while longer.
“We want to look ahead to the brighter times we can spend together in the future by celebrating everyone’s New Year’s resolutions.”
And that’s just part of the first wave of celebrity contestants – more famous faces will take part in I’m A Celebrity… South Africa, entering the camp as the series goes on.
The new series will ‘push them to their limits and test them like never before’, ITV has said, promising bigger and tougher challenges and an even harsher environment.
Also taking part from the launch episode will be Diversity star Jordan Banjo, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
ITV said: “Whilst nodding back to the Australian jungle, I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is a uniquely different series so viewers can look forward to lots of unexpected twists and turns.”
The trailer also shows the celebs taking part in pre-recorded challenges, taking on everything from nasty food to terrifying heights.
I’m A Celebrity… South Africa will air on ITV1 and ITVX from April 2023.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
