It’s been confirmed there will be a huge fireworks show to ring in the New Year in Manchester on December 31st, although it’ll be held in a different location.

Manchester City Council confirmed the news, and by the sounds of things it’s going to be mint.

The major public fireworks celebration is usually held at Albert Square, but will be moving this year due to refurbishment work.

After the success of the Christmas lights switch-on earlier this month, the New Year’s Eve event will take place in the same spot at the end of Deansgate, just next to Manchester Cathedral.

The event promises to be a family friendly extravaganza, but if you fancy a pint you’re in for disappointment as there will be strictly no alcohol allowed.

This year it’s going to kick off around 10.30pm on Tuesday December 31st (obviously), with music and a big screen for the crowds.

After that the big countdown will begin, accompanied by a 10-minute fireworks display over the city.

And of course the best part is the whole thing is free, so get yourself down early to bag a good spot.

You can’t beat a bottomless brunch, with nonstop booze and good food – it’s what Sundays are made for.

But what could make a bottomless brunch even better? Well, how about ENDLESS SANGRIA ON TAP alongside some top notch Brazilian food? Yep, that’ll do it.

And Manchester’s very own KBOM Bar & Kitchen is doing just that, launching their ‘Domingo sem Fundo‘ – which roughly translates as ‘Bottomless Sundays’ – this weekend.

Finest Media

You can choose a starter and a main alongside bottomless drinks for 90 minutes for just £22.95 per person, with a wide range of Brazilian and Portuguese dishes to pick from.

Starters include Rissois de Quejio – deep-fried cheese croquettes – or Pao de Quejio, cheesy dough balls which are the most popular street food snack over in Brazil.

You can also grab Asas Grelhadas, which is Portuguese style grilled chicken wings, marinated and cooked in either lemon and herb or KBOM’s very own Piri Piri seasoning.

Finest Media

When it comes to mains, there’s loads of authentic Brazilian and Portuguese dishes, like Bitoque – a Portuguese take on steak and eggs – and Frango Grelhado, which is half a grilled Piri Piri spiced chicken with fries.

There’s also the Burger da Onda – a steak and king prawn burger – alongside Espetada de Gambas, grilled king prawn skewers brushed with in-house made chilli and garlic seasoning.

If you want to go all out there’s the Picanha à Brasileira, Brazilian-style grilled sirloin steak served with black beans, rice and farofa seasoning.

Finest Media

When it comes to drinks you’re really spoiled for choice, with bottomless Sangria straight from the tap, Caipirinhas (a top quality Brazilian cocktail), red, white or rose wine, Super Bock or Sagres lager, or if you’re off the booze there’s soft drinks as well.

KBOM’s bottomless Sunday brunches start this Sunday, September 20th, with three slots at 12:15-13:45, 14:00-15:30 and 15:45-17:15 – you can book in here.
