Junkyard Gold Club is reopening next week, bringing mad cocktails and crazy golf back into your life after months without.
Junkyard Golf Club is a cracking night out for anyone wishing to relive their younger years playing crazy golf, but with a cocktail in hand.
The neon-lit playground is back but with a few new twists and turns to ensure guests are completely safe on their return!
The golf is returning on August 3rd and everyone must pre-book to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Tickets are on sale now!
Junkyard Gold Club is a huge open plan venue that’s perfect for social distancing, with a time slot system, cocktails served in single-use cups and cashless payments already in operation.
They’ve now added a table-service option, so you can sip on your favourite cocktails topped with pic n mix without having to get up from your seat.
Sophie-Larissa Houghton, National PR Manager of Junkyard Golf, said: “We are MEGA excited to be back! It’s been a crazy few months and we can’t wait to be reunited with our epic guests and team!
“We will be returning in full swing… junkyard style! Working round the clock to make sure we deliver the same mega madness as before but also making our yard super safe!
“We have reduced ticket capacity, time slots and now all tickets now must be pre-purchased to monitor and maintain social distancing. We have also introduced a snazzy table service for cocktails. It’s been a difficult few months, everyone is in need of an escape and time to catch up with friends.
“Our team is committed to keeping all our venues clean, safe and super fun, making crazy golf epic! We are also offering a 50% off for all ‘Blue Light’ Services.”
There are three different mashed-up courses to choose from, ‘Pablo – Polluted Paradise’, ‘Gary – It’s a Scrapyard Ting!’ and ‘Bozo – Time to Run Away from the Circus’.
Junkyard Gold Club will be open seven days a week, Monday – Wednesday 4pm-12am, Thursday 2pm-12am, Friday & Saturday 12pm-1am and Sunday 12pm-10pm.
Printworks is giving away more prizes at another huge interactive quiz next week
Calling all quiz experts…
Manchester’s number one entertainment venue Printworks is putting on some big interactive quizzes this month.
Printworks is officially ‘Open for Quizness’ with the launch of the two online game shows offering the chance to win £500 worth of prizes, as well as the chance for one lucky Mancunian to be crowned the city’s ultimate quiz champion.
When looking back over the last year, quizzes will be remembered for keeping us entertained and connected with our loved ones.
So in celebration of the Printworks reopening on May 17th, the venue is hosting two interactive events in partnership with local game developers Piing.
The first one happened on Tuesday, May 4th, and went down a storm, delivering hours of top class quiz-based entertainment – as well as prizes.
The next one is happening next week, on Tuesday May 11th at 6:30pm, and Manchester is invited to pick up its phones and meet friends, family or colleagues on the leaderboard.
This isn’t just any old online quiz, and whether you’re at home with a takeaway, in the park or in a beer garden, you can join in for the chance to win prizes including vouchers to spend in your favourite Printworks destination – as well as a few booby prizes.
Jason Shay, Centre Director at Printworks, said: “Over the last 20 years, Printworks has been the number one destination for entertaining family and friends with fun-filled days and vibrant nights out.
“We’re looking forward to hosting the quiz to end all quizzes to treat our much-loved and loyal customers ahead of the reopening of our indoor venues from the 17th May.”
There’ll be five quiz rounds to take part in including Food and Drink, British Pop Culture and Manchester, with a sports round to discover if Manchester is truly Red or Blue.
You can even make a night of it with some takeaway scran from Nando’s, Hard Rock Café or Wasabi. Wagamama and Hard Rock Café are also open for outdoor drinks and dining, although you’re best prebooking a table.

An immersive ‘Fawlty Towers’ dining experience is happening this summer
Make sure you don’t miss this at The Bowdon Rooms
Fawlty Towers is an iconic piece of British television history, and has had audiences in stitches ever since it first aired in the 1970s.
Now you can live out an authentic Basil Fawlty dining experience at ‘Faulty Towers’, an immersive restaurant event which is happening at The Bowdon Rooms this summer.
The audience will become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, and pretty much anything can happen – with 70% of the show being improvised.
The fun starts as guests wait to be seated, before two-hours of jokes and shambolic service ensue, as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a ‘70s-style three-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem.
Internationally acclaimed, Faulty Towers was born in April 1997 as a loving tribute to the BBC’s much-loved TV series, and nearly a million people around the world have now seen it.
As of 2019, 11 teams of cast working from England and Australia tour around 20 countries a year performing it – the show is in its eighth year in London’s West End, where it holds TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.
It’s won rave reviews as well, with The Advertiser at Adelaide Fringe saying: “A solid two hours of madness and a fantastic tribute to the much-loved BBC sitcom that leaves you bursting in laughter”.
Broadway Baby at Edinburgh Fringe called it ‘Outrageously funny’, while Best of Toronto, Sony Centre for the Performing Arts added: “Hilarious… catch it before it leaves”.
The ticket price includes a three course meal, and special dietary requirements must be made directly with the venue a minimum of one week before the event.
It’s coming to The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday June 20th 2021, with events at 12:00pm and 17:00pm.
You can grab your tickets here – for bookings of 10 or more you’ll need to contact the venue directly.
Located in Bowdon, Altrincham, The Bowdon Rooms is an example of stunning Edwardian architecture with Art Deco influences in the immaculate interior.
Dating back to 1903, the award-winning venue is a great choice for exclusive events with its abundance of old style charm and grandeur, authentic character and beautiful features.
