The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience

The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience Manchester launched 20 brand new games this month – the largest investment in the attraction since its opening in 2017.

The new games also coincide with the 30 year anniversary of the Crystal Maze phenomena, with the original TV show first hitting our screens back in the 1990s.

Jon Crawley, Director of Product, The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience, said: “The Manchester Maze is the longest-serving theatrical experience here in the city, and we continue to be blown away by its popularity.”

Jon added: “Our guests view the Crystal Maze as a must-do attraction in Manchester, and our reviews consistently talk passionately about the quality of our games and our beloved Maze Masters, who host the experience.

“Keeping our games fresh and exciting is an ongoing mission for my team and we hope that these new games are loved as much as the originals. As the TV show has grown so have our attractions and I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings!”

All four of the original themed adventure zones (Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Futuristic) have been updated with new games.

In the Medieval zone, you can now try out Crossbow Castle, a new skills-based challenge where you have to be a crack shot to release the crystal from the castle. You’ll also now have the chance to try and Crack The Safe in the Industrial zone, by using your mathematical prowess.

Hoopla, Eggy Swamp and Basketball are brand new additions to the Aztec zone, and in the Futuristic zone Lab Accident is a new mystery game – a radiation leak in the space laboratory has ruined years of research and killed the head scientist, but not before he left a clue trail.

In addition to the 20 new games, 11 popular original challenges have been refreshed with brand new gameplay and scenic improvements, meaning there are now 31 new games to play in the four categories of Mental, Skill, Mystery and Physical challenges.

The brand new games took twelve months to design and install, and many were created in the Crystal Maze part of the Little Lion Laboratory, the creative studio where the games are innovated, created, stress-tested and fabricated before launching live into the attractions themselves.

Glastonbury Festival has officially been cancelled for the second year running.

It will no longer take place in 2021 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The news was announced on the festival’s official Twitter page today, Thursday January 21st.

The post said: “With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place.

“And that this will be another enforced fallow year for us. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year. Full statement below and on our website. Michael & Emily.”

Organiser Emily Eavis told the BBC last month that she hoped the festival could still happen, despite ‘huge uncertainty’ surrounding live music at the moment.

She said: “We’re doing everything we can on our end to plan and prepare, but I think we’re still quite a long way from being able to say we’re confident 2021 will go ahead.”

A new ‘first-of-its-kind’ entertainment venue is set to open this year in Manchester.

The one-stop destination will see a combination of live music, events, entertainment, food, drink and socialising all in the venue. 

Canvas will be home to three different areas: Canvas Kitchen, Canvas Club and Canvas Events.

The development will take place at Circle Square and have space for 100 in Canvas Kitchen and a further 400 people in the live music and events space.

Circle Square Manchester

The venue will be open from 7am until 4am every single day meaning you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and even a night out all in one place. 

You’re guaranteed to be in good hands too with the team behind Canvas Manchester responsible for the likes of Hammersmith Apollo, Brixton Academy and G-A-Y Manchester.

The calendar for events is expected to be well-rounded with the likes of wellbeing events, room for social activism, plus gigs, networking events and workshops. 

Gavin Aldrich, CEO at BeSixth, said of the new development: “We’ll be in the heart of a thriving, city centre neighbourhood that brings together people from all walks of life – be it students, shoppers, business owners or academics – and it’s this community that makes us confident Circle Square will be the perfect destination to launch Canvas Manchester.”

Circle Square Manchester

Tom Renn, Managing Director of Bruntwood SciTech – Manchester added: “Our ambition for Circle Square was always to create a destination – a place that would bring people together morning, day and night and a place that would become part of the fabric of the city. Somewhere tourists and innovators would see as a must-visit when coming to Manchester.

Adding: “The live music industry has understandably suffered as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but where better to drive its resurgence than in the ‘City that thinks a table is for dancing on’?”

Bez is set to launch his very own fitness classes online to see everyone through lockdown.

The Happy Mondays maraca-shaking dancer is releasing his own series of classes called ‘Get Buzzing With Bez’, as he attempts to shift his own lockdown weight. 

The classes will launch on January 17th showing Bez being trained by a fitness instructor, something he’s describing as ‘somewhere between Joe Wicks and Mr Motivator’. 

He said: “I’d like to think I’m somewhere between Joe Wicks and Mr Motivator. I’ve started this new year seriously unfit, with a fat belly and creaky hips, and I can’t stop eating chocolate.

“Last lockdown I got unfit, fat, lazy and into some seriously bad eating habits.

“This year, this lockdown, I need to sort it out sharpish.”

He added that people can join him ‘on this mad journey or just sit on the sofa and have a good laugh at me’.

He added: “At the very least, I know I’ll be making people smile, at best I’ll be helping people get fit and mentally happier alongside me.”

Get Buzzin’ With Bez is launching over on YouTube on Sunday January 17th, with Bez encouraging us to get active every week for three months.
