This looks incredible!
Sea Life Manchester is launching limited-edition evening events to keep you and the kids entertained throughout Autumn, and they’re kicking off with a mesmerising mermaid event.
If you’re looking for a spectacular show to treat the kids to – this is definitely it!

The after-hours event is taking place on Friday nights, starting this Friday, September 25th, until October 16th, giving guests plenty of chance to witness the magical mermaid show.
Speaking on the launch Stuart Jarman, General Manager at Manchester Cluster, Merlin Entertainments, said: ”The response of guests to the re-opening of our attractions Sea Life Manchester and Legoland Discovery Centre here at Barton Square has been incredible.
“As we continue to safely and responsibly welcome guests back to SEA LIFE Manchester, we’re delighted to launch a programme of extra-special events that promise to inspire, excite and educate guests of all ages on the wonders of ocean life.
“Our real-life mermaids are incredible and a real visual experience. They’re loved by our creatures, who love to engage with them, as much as our visitors.”
Tickets, which are £21.95 for adults and £16.95 for children (kids under three go free), also get you full access to the family attraction.
You can get up close to sharks, octopuses, stingrays, and giant green sea turtles. Plus there are loads more to see, as Sea Life is home to over 1,000 wondrous creatures!
Tickets are limited and the Mermaid event, the first in the series, is likely to sell out quickly!
P!NK is kicking-off her world tour in Bolton next week
P!NK will bring her tour to Greater Manchester next week
Pop star P!NK is set to kick-off her world tour starting in Bolton next week.
The 43-year-old superstar will embark on her Summer Carnival World Tour next week at the University of Bolton Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday, June 7th and 8th.
The popular American singer-songwriter will take to the stage — in her upcoming eighth concert tour — for the two days as she performs some of her well-known hits and best loved tracks, including songs from her latest album, Trustfall.
The six-pack sporting musician, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore Hart, posted an image of herself suspended in the air, while practising some kind of aerial arts, on Instagram last week to give fans a taste of what’s to come.
Alongside the image she wrote: “Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
The quote was taken from the 19th-century American philosopher and poet Henry Thoreau. One excited fan wrote: “Can’t wait to see u in Berlin!! I’m flying from Barcelona.”
Another one-upped them and said: “Can’t wait to see her in Germany!!! flying from NY to Barcelona then to Germany!!” A third fan added: “Can’t wait to see you in July…this will be so fantastic.”
The concerts will be held in the open air, with doors opening from 4.30pm and music due to start at 5.30pm – 11pm on both days.
P!NK will be supported by special guests at the concerts including Kidcutup, Gayle and The Script.
The council has issued advice for parking and traffic management with extensive traffic restrictions in place due to concertgoers travelling by different forms of transport such as car, coaches, public transport, taxis and also by foot.

DJ Fat Tony coming to Selfridges for Q&A about new ‘outrageous’ memoir
He hung out with Leigh Bowery and Andy Warhol, and created his drag persona, before becoming DJ to the stars
DJ Fat Tony is coming to Selfridges, Manchester this week to do a Q&A about his new ‘outrageous’ memoir, I Don’t Take Requests.
Join one of the most controversial DJs to ever grace the UK party scene along with his co-author Michael Hennegan in conversation, as they celebrate the paperback release of I Don’t Take Requests.
The live discussion with the DJ, about his life and memoir, will take place on Friday, May 26th 6-8pm. Tickets cost £10 and guests will receive a free paperback copy of his new release as well as the chance to enjoy a live DJ set.
Throughout his life and career, the DJ has grappled with addiction, a HIV diagnosis and various career challenges.
Harrowing, honest, and funny, I Don’t Take Requests is the ‘candid and outrageous memoir of a life of extremes’.
It’s a story of ‘getting it all and losing it all’. Addiction, recovery, and starting again. Drawing a vivid portrait of Britain’s street culture from the 1980s to the noughties.
DJ Fat Tony describes his childhood on a London estate where he honed his petty criminality, was abused by an older man, and became best friends with Boy George.
He spent his teenage years parading the Kings Road in his latest (mostly stolen) clobber, worked as a receptionist at a brothel, hung out with Leigh Bowery and Andy Warhol, and created his drag persona, before becoming DJ to the stars (including Prince and Madonna) and spiralling into a life threatening drug addiction.
Now 16 years sober he has enjoyed a renaissance in life, becoming one of fashion’s favourite DJs. He does this whilst being a leading voice on the sobriety scene and an LGBTQ activist.
Tickets cost £10 and include a copy of I Don’t Take Requests, a Q&A panel discussion, as well as a live DJ set.

Fri 26th May, 2023 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Men’s Level 1, Selfridges, 1 Exchange Sq, Central, Manchester M3 1BD.
