Blackpool Pleasure Beach

If you’re planning on heading to Blackpool anytime soon we’ve got some good news for you.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is doing half price WOW Weekend wristbands again, meaning you can ride all your favourite roller coasters for super cheap.

If you’re feeling brave get yourself on ICON – the park’s newest ride and the UK’s first double launch roller coaster – which catapults you forward with the same acceleration as a Formula One racing car.

ICON cuts through classic rides The Big One, the Steeplechase and Big Dipper, giving a second burst of speed midway through – think I’ll give that one a miss then.

Families can head to the UK’s only Nickelodeon Land, where sprogs can meet their favourite characters – including PAW Patrol – and enjoy a whirl on SpongeBob’s Splash Bash or one of the other 11 rides.

The WOW Weekend offer means you can grab a wristband for just £19.50 when booked online in advance.

The offer is running from Saturday February 15th until Sunday March 29th, and the park will be open every weekend.

Speaking on the park’s reopening, Amanda Thompson OBE, Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, commented: “It’s such an exciting time for us as we open the park gates for the 2020 season!

“Our WOW Weekends are such a fantastic way to start the year, welcoming back all of our visitors old and new, with such a special price promotion. Wristbands are available to purchase online now, so be sure to join us at Blackpool Pleasure Beach as we begin another incredible season.”

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.

Hard Rock Café

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.

To take part in the quiz live you can visit the website here on your mobile (or desktop).

Here’s what you can win:

  1. 1st Prize: £150 spending spree at Printworks – to be spent in a venue of choice
  2. 2nd Prize: £50 to spend at a Printworks venue of choice
  3. 3rd Prize: £25 to spend at a Printworks venue of choice

An immersive ‘Fawlty Towers’ dining experience is happening this summer

Make sure you don’t miss this at The Bowdon Rooms

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

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.

BBC

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 Faulty Towers Dining Experience

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.

The Bowdon Rooms / Facebook

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.
