Manchester at Christmas time

It is now that time of year once again. Yes, it’s Christmas. So, one of the most important things you need to decide is not what present you’re going to buy your nephew, not where you’re going to buy the free range turkey from but in fact, which Christmas markets you’re going to spend your run up to Christmas at! Perhaps the Birmingham German markets? Or would you prefer to be indulging in Manchester’s finest markets that offer an amplitude of delicious treats, mulled wine and all the marshmallow hot chocolates you can shake a stick at.

But which fantastic market will you attend? Below is an interactive map featuring some of the stands that Manchester has to offer this festive season. Load it up when you’re out and about to guide you round the beautifully festive Manchester Markets this year.




New playground project hopes to bring life back to Landsmere


Residents of the deprived area of Landsmere in Stowshire have put together a 6-year fundraiser in order to raise money to build a spanking new park that hopes to renovate the area.

Landsmere is renowned for being riddled with vandals, houses that haven’t seen a lick of paint or renovation since the 1950’s and has an avid reputation for anti-social behavior but the new park and community area hopes to introduce a new lease of life.

Plans for the new park and communal facility went underway lastgarden-823396_960_720 week and will cost approx £50,00 to complete. The park will consist of a brand new play equipment, a sandpit and skateboarding and scooter area. Local authorities such as the Bradfield Council and Community Chest have so far donated £25,000 between them so the remaining funds are yet to be gathered by the community.

It’s a Game of Thrones: Season 6 kind of day

Continue for a breakdown of the epic season 6- WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD

Ah, Game of Thrones. Probably one of the world’s most talked about and biggest TV series of the past few years. So now, as were coming to the end of this year, it just feels right to have a discussion about 2016’s helping of the epic fantasy prophecy. Whether you’re a raging Lannister or Stark fan girl, or you’ve never heard of Game of Thrones before (if so, how?!), by the end of this article you will have an insider knowledge into season 6’s shenanigans and all their epic glory.

Game of Thrones is renowned for having some of the most biting- and a majority of the time soul crushing- story lines ever written. Like for example: the heart wrenching execution of Ned Stark in season 1, to the fall of the little s*** King Geoffrey, to the seeded on-going love affair between Cersi and Jamie Lannister and then to the epic Battle of the Bastards between our beloved John Snow and Ramsey Bolton. But, season 6 probably had in stall the best story lines in Game of Throne’s history because we are left hook line and sinker come the end of the season.
