Open Air Bounce

A massive outdoor bounce park with inflatables in Greater Manchester is back for the school holidays, and it has some fantastic events planned.

Family venture Open Air Bounce is the brand new inflatable park at Umberton Farm in Over Hulton, Bolton and it has lots in store for families to get involved in over the holidays.

With huge inflatables including bouncy castles, slides and obstacle courses this fun-packed park can be seen from the nearby M61.

Aside from the bouncing and inflatables, this adventure park also has attractions such as roundabouts and a carousel, as well as fairground-style lights and music, bringing thrills and excitement to your day and it’s all designed for young bouncers to enjoy in a safe outdoor environment.

The park is open to all ages but provides the option of a separate area for under fours, and welcomes adults to join in on the fun alongside their kids.

They’ve even created a sandy beach, complete with deckchairs and buckets and spades for those warmer days saving you a drive out to the nearest coast.

Sessions run three times a day with two-hour time slots available from 10am to 12pm, 1pm to 3pm and 4pm to 6pm.

Special events are running on specific dates including a football event with freestyler Chris Draper on July 23rd, DJ Chris on July 29th, a Teddy Bears Picnic on July 30th and August 12th and a Foam Party on August 13th and 28th.

Further events yet to be confirmed include birds of prey, superheroes and princesses.

Open Air Bounce

Open Air Bounce was founded by local Leighton Mills who, alongside his dad Darren, wife Sarah and step-mum Paula, wanted to make use of the 68 acres of land at Umberton Farm and help the local community in some way.

Tickets cost £9.95 for ages one to four and £12.50 for ages five and above, including adults. Under ones go free and adults who aren’t bouncing pay £2.50 entry. You can book online today by clicking HERE.

Family run business, Open Air Bounce is located at Umberton Farm, Over Hulton, Bolton, BL5 1BP.

The legendary Manchester Flower Festival is returning to our city later this month, complete with pop-ups, installations and tributes to some local icons.

Taking place over the late May Bank Holiday, the event will be headlined by its ‘Floral Trail’.

This year’s theme is Manchester Icons, with a host of names past and present being honoured in flower form, including the late comedy legend Caroline Aherne, pop star Sarah Harding and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst.

Collaborating with Manchester illustrator Stanley Chow, floral designer Liv Woodward will create a portrait of Caroline Aherne at the Floral Marquee on New Cathedral Street, using sustainably sourced plants and flowers.

Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding will be remembered in a ‘tribute garden’, sponsored by the AO Arena, with visitors able to donate to the Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal by scanning the QR code at the display.

The homage to Pankhurst has been created by female-led Decordia, featuring an ornate wooden Manchester Town Hall-inspired planter with sashes, posters and colourful icons, alongside a wicker figure of the suffragette herself.

This can be found at the corner of Cross Street and King Street, adorned with purple, green and white plants – the colours of the suffragette movement.

Other local legends will also be honoured with their own installations, including Happy Mondays vocalist Rowetta and iconic Manchester brewery Boddingtons .

Fringe events will be taking place too, at locations including Northern Quarter art shop Fred Aldous, The Bridgewater Hall, the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel and the National Trust’s Castlefield Viaduct.

Selfridges Exchange Square, El Gato Negro, Tast Catala, Franco Manca, Grand Pacific Manchester and Urban Playground will also be taking part, with alfresco dining, festival-related dishes and cocktails.
