“I am glad to work in a city with a proud heritage.”

Fred Booth has been director at the Printworks for nearly 12 years.

“We have grown into a major destination and integral part of Manchester. A huge amount of stars have visited within that time including Will Smith, David Beckham, Lionel Ritchie and Kylie. I am glad to work in a city with a proud heritage that bounces back from issues like the riots last year to show how much we care about our city. The two top teams in the premiership and superb support means we now have the most anticipated derby matches in the country. As long as the blue half remains dominant I will be a happy man.”
