Things to do in Manchester from Crystal Maze to bottomless brunch

From a bottomless disco brunch to even having a go at trying to beat The Cube, we’ve put together a what’s on video guide to some of the best events to enjoy in the city-region in the coming days.

Disco Brunch

A disco brunch is landing in Manchester this Saturday 26 February. The new bottomless brunch at Ducie Street Warehouse will mark the start of the party series.

Every Saturday, bottomless cocktails and dishes will be available to order in the lounge.

On the last weekend of the month the warehouse will host a party where the restaurant will be transformed with music from a variety of DJs from 1pm until 4pm. The decks are then moved back into the lounge for the party to continue.

Macaron making class

This Saturday 26 February, Didsbury’s very own cookery school is hosting a macaron making class.

Hosted by Steph Clubb, you will be taken through all of the key baking techniques, including how to make the macaron shell, how to make fillings and enhance your piping skills.

The class is designed to give you the confidence to go home and practice all of these techniques in your own time with copies of the recipes available to be sent by email after the session.

Urban Playground

Now have you ever watched ITV’s The Cube and thought that you’d be able to do it? Well now you have the chance to give it a go here in Manchester.

The Cube Live forms part of a new multi-million pound entertainment complex Urban Playground inside Manchester’s Arndale Centre.

There are seven different challenges per session, allowing groups of two to four to take on The Cube. There is also a tech-infused mini golf course called putters where you can practice your putting skills.

‘Gary In Punderland’

After performing no fewer than 160 shows on his last circuit of the country, comedian Gary Delaney has spent the lockdown period creating his new show called ‘Gary In Punderland’ which is coming to The Lowry this Saturday 26 February.

Filled with a variety of one-liners, the Live At The Apollo star’s new show is a play on the popular children’s classic ‘Alice In Wonderland’.

Crystal Maze Manchester

The ever popular team game runs daily and allows teams of eight people to pit their wits against games of skill, physical and mental challenges and mystery tasks as they vie to win crystals which buy more time in the famous dome at the end.

It’s huge amounts of fun, with the physical games particularly enjoyable, and constant entertainment from the chatty hosts who guide you round the maze. See if you can make the leaderboard at the end!

It is on Lower Byrom Street near the science museum. Book your tickets here.
