Want a work's night out with a difference?

Get the Friday feeling back at Pure's Office Party

Published on March 9th 2009.


Want a work's night out with a difference?

Now here's a new way to mark the start of the weekend. Pure at The Printworks are launching a weekly night called 'Office Party' on Friday 27 March. Combining free entertainment with cheap food and drinks and 'It's a Knock Out-style games', it looks like the type of evening where you'll have fun, despite yourself.

The organisers explain the idea behind it: “With the recession taking a big chunk out of most companies' ‘staff night out’ budget, the Office Party provides the perfect solution with free entertainment and team building activities plus great offers on food and drink to help those pennies stretch even further.”

We're not sure about the 'team building activities' but if you're not into inflatable football shoot-outs, or larking around with pugil sticks, you can always head straight to the live entertainment. There'll be a Comedy Room hosted by the Frog and Bucket where you can watch two of the best up-and-coming comedians each week. Then in the Music Room, you'll get to see the hottest new Northern music acts performing indie, rock, jazz and pop. Headlining the first event are Untitled States who play a fusion of indie-rock, electronica, reggae and pop.

The final room hosts the bar and a canteen where you can re-live your favourite school dinners – thus avoiding the carnage often caused by after-work drinking on an empty stomach. And with low prices, you won't wake up on Saturday wondering where all your cash went (though if there's giant inflatables involved, your dignity might be harder to locate).

All in all, it's designed to be the perfect place to unwind with your workmates after a week in the office. Go along and report back on what it's like, if you can remember.

The first Office Party will be held on 27 March at Pure in The Printworks, starting at 5pm and ending at 9pm. It's free to get in, and you can either just turn up on the night, or phone in advance to reserve an area for your group. Call Craig at Pure on 0161 8197770 or email him on craig@puremanchester.com to make a reservation.
