No thanks…

A company has launched the UK’s first ever drive-thru scare maze, that promises to be Covid-safe but still terrifying. 

Opening up in Wrexham, just an hour drive from Manchester, participants will be treated to a massive live-action experience – driving through some of the best scenes from horror movies and TV shows. 

Put on by Cyclone Events Management this is the perfect experience for horror junkies who are ready for something a bit different this Halloween, as if this year hasn’t been spooky enough. 

Once you’ve driven into the maze, the only way out is to go through it – no matter how scary things get.

The organisers have also ensured plenty of Covid safety measures are put in place, including making the entire maze completely contactless.

All participants must wear a mask and no one is allowed out of the vehicle during the 20 minute ride. 

The attraction is 16+ only and will feature some ‘extremely gruesome’ scenes from TV shows and movies from over the years.

Most of the live action sections are left secret to ensure the biggest scares, but some that are shown in pictures include plenty of zombies.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 11th, and are priced at £12.50 – you can grab them here

If that’s not enough spooky stuff for you, a brand new and terrifying Halloween event is happening in Merseyside that sees you walking through a pitch-black woodland trail.

It’s been described as definitely ‘not for the faint-hearted’, and that ‘anything could happen’ on the mile-long path.

A Christmas spa with a mulled wine hot tub has opened just outside Manchester

It’s definitely mulled wine time!

The only way to get in the festive spirit this year? Quite literally bathe yourself in mulled wine.

The unusual Christmas experience is just a short distance from Manchester and will have you soaking up the spice and warmth of mulled wine.

The spa gives guests a much-needed winter wonderland experience that is actually supposed to be beneficial.

The warmth opens your pores, releasing toxins and allowing your skin to embrace the tannins in the mulled wine, according to the spa.

The hot tub is filled with the festive hot drink and helps ‘fight viruses and fungi whilst also improving cardiac health and increasing blood flow’. Some also say the polyphenols found in grapes and citrus fruits help improve circulation.

For those looking for a detox – it will do that too! The orange, cinnamon and star anise found in the wine have a ‘high level of antioxidants’.

And if you thought you wouldn’t be able to taste it – think again, you’ll even get a nice mug of the delicious festive drink while you soak in it. It’ll be from a fresh bottle though not the bath.

Other festive treatments include a 45-minute Frankincense massage or a body scrub using brown sugar, cinnamon and orange which is supposed to bring blood flow back to the skin and ‘leave you glowing’.

If you fancy getting in the festive spirit, the Christmas spa is in Cheshire, at the newly refurbished Bazaar Spa & Silk Garden at Shrigley Hall in Macclesfield. Prices start at £60pp. 

You can book here.

Christmas this year isn’t going to be as festive as usual, but there are still some events happening that can help take your mind off the awful year we’ve just had.

Earlier today we brought you the news that Dunham Massey’s light trail is still happening, and now we’ve got something else to get you in the festive spirit.

Bar Hütte is returning to Manchester this year, bringing with it some magical, cosy Alpine huts where you can drink festive booze and singalong to karaoke.

This year, however, it will be moving from its traditional spot at Spinningfields to the Great Northern Square from December 3rd, with – of course – a new Covid-secure approach.

The epic Christmas village will come complete with a giant Christmas tree, and you’ll be able to book your very own private ‘hütte’, which will be perfect for social distancing.

Once in your hütte, you’ll be able to order festive drinks like hot gin and mulled wine, as well as Irish hot chocolates, and there’s also oven-baked pizzas on offer – you can also grab the classic ‘Bombardino’ cocktail, which is complimentary for all bookings.

This year there’ll be even more hüttes to choose from, with 24 set to make an appearance, each complete with a karaoke machine loaded with festive hits.

The event runs from December 3rd throughout the month and you can book here now – each hütte costs £50 for an hour and 45 minutes use, and comes with complimentary pizza, a Bombardino and karaoke machine.

Dunham Massey’s festive illuminated Christmas light trail is still happening

This will be mint!

Christmas isn’t looking as festive as usual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, but there is a small ray of light.

While it’s still up in the air whether we will be able to have a big family get together on Christmas Day, Dunham Massey has spread some festive cheer, confirming its stunning festive illumination trail IS still going ahead.

Due to the current restrictions it’s now expected to start on December 3rd when the lockdown is lifted, and is being extended into January 2021 to make up for the cancelled dates in November.

Dunham Massey National Trust

The stunning light show has taken place each Christmas for the last three years and sold out each time. The after-dark event brings visitors through a winding path of lights trail through the park.

Huge snowflakes create an aerial kaleidoscope over the gardens, there are colour-changing reflections on the lakeside and trees dripped with silvery shards of lights, baubles and stars.

This year the tunnel of light will return and visitors can expect some brand new installations too.

Dunham Massey National Trust

Tickets are still on sale but are selling out fast – currently there are only a couple of tickets left for December, with quite a few still available in January.

Tickets cost £20 for adults and £13 for children three to 16. You can opt for a £60 family ticket instead which includes admission for two adults and two children.

The event is planned to run from December 3rd through to January 10th, and you can find more info and book tickets here.
