A new Halloween event in Merseyside takes you along a terrifying woodland trail in the darkness.

Very few details have actually been released about what you can expect on the trail, to ensure you get the biggest jump possible. 

What we do know is that the trail will be in complete darkness and you’ll walk along the path for one mile, where ‘anything could happen’.

Organisers wrote a message to those thinking about booking: “It will be dark, it will be scary”, with the event being described as “not for the faint-hearted !!!”

Each group of people will take to the path together but will not interact with any other parties to ensure the Halloween event is Covid-safe.

The event is taking place in Go Outside, Shorrocks Hill on Lifeboat Road in Formby on October 30th and 31st, to get you right in the mood for the spookiest night of the year. 

You can book hour long slots from 7pm on Friday and 6pm on Saturday. Or if you think you can handle it you can experience it at midnight. 

Head over to the Go Outside Facebook for more info and to keep an eye out for updates.

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.”

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.”

SIGN US UP. 

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.
