Printworks has launched a virtual Mini Monsters Trail to help families celebrate the spooky season with plenty of treats and absolutely no tricks.

Just like everything else amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Halloween is gearing up to be a little different this year, but with the nights drawing in and the big day coming up this Saturday, you can still make the most out of October half term at Manchester’s “number one entertainment venue” this week.

Five mini monsters will be hidden across the Printworks’ website each day, and all you have to do is read the clues to find each monster, and you could then be entered into the “creepy competition”. 

The Mini Monsters Trail is taking place from Monday 26th – Friday 30th October.

With a total of five daily trails to take part in throughout the week, there’s six chances for families to win “fang-tastic prizes”.


Plus, if you manage to find the special Haunted Halloween Monster along the trail, then you’ll be entered into the “spookalicious grand prize draw” which could see you winning a £100 voucher to spend at a number of Printworks’ venues. 

The Mini Monsters Trail has also been launched to coincide with Printworks’ involvement with the return of the Halloween in the City Monster Invasion.


You can catch the Printworks monster on its roof from 26th October – 1st November.

If you fancy joining in with the Mini Monsters Trail this week, then you can head on over to the Printworks website here for more information and to get started.

There’s plenty of other things happening at the city centre entertainment complex this week too.



Vue will be showing all of the Halloween classics for both families and horror fans, and you can expect to catch the likes of Psycho, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Hocus Pocus from just £4.99 a ticket throughout the month.

You can book your tickets here.

Escape Reality

If you want a real scary experience, then you can’t really go wrong with an escape room, and when you play horror rooms Enigmista or Ritual at Escape Reality, you’ll get 50% off any other room for your next visit, but you’ll have to make out of this room in one piece first.

More information on this offer can be found here.

Treetop Adventure Golf

Don’t want to risk bumping into any vampires? Tee off before midday at Treetop Adventure Golf and you’ll be able to play a second course for free while the sun is still up.


You can take advantage of the offer here.

Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe is giving you a taste of Halloween this October with a special cocktail for the spooky season, and the kids will also be able to pay with a pumpkin too, so get carving.

Bring a carved pumpkin during October Half Term, and get a meal from the kid’s Roxtars Menu free of charge when you buy a main meal.

More information can be found here.


Leave the pumpkins at Hard Rock Cafe and carve out some time during October half term for bowling, because the offers at Manchester’s newest Tenpin venue include bowling and a drink from £9 per person, bowling and food for £13 per person, and bowling, food and drink from £15 per person.


Frankie and Benny’s

Treat the little terrors to lunch, as kids eat free over October half term when you order a main meal.
