With the January blues behind us and spring just around the corner, head to the Great Northern, Manchester’s ultimate leisure destination, to make the most of the February half term.
With tonnes of offers and events fit for days with family or nights with friends, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
For a treat that the whole family will love, head to Alex’s Bakery for its new afternoon tea, consisting of a mouth-watering assortment of savoury snacks and sweet treats. With three price tiers starting from £9.90 per person, there’s no reason to not indulge this half term.
Or for an even more sizeable treat, dine at Almost Famous, home to Manchester’s biggest and best burgers. Little ones can have it large with the Home Alone cheeseburger, from the kids menu, topped with frazzles, mac and cheese and a strawberry pop tart for the ultimate February feast for just £7.
Bowl over your family or get competitive with friends at All Star Lanes, where a restaurant, bar, karaoke booths and bowling alley are all under one roof. To add some sweetness to half term, any party with a restaurant reservation on Pancake Day will receive free pancakes with their meal.
Head to Odeon to enjoy one of the many blockbusters currently screening, from the family-friendly Dolittle to award-winning 1917. Or leave the kids at home and take a trip back to the 80s with an exclusive screening of the retro American horror The Lost Boys on 18th February at 20:15. With tickets starting at just £5, everyone can enjoy some holiday movie magic.
Marvel at masterpieces at Art of the Brick, the world-renowned Lego sculpture exhibition by artist Nathan Sawaya. From a tremendous T-Rex to a magnificent Mona Lisa, there are over 75 pieces for both adults and kids to enjoy. To brighten up your February, you can get a free ticket for your little one when purchased with an adult ticket throughout the February break.
For family fun or a boozy bash, look no further than Impossible. Take the little ones to enjoy its Wednesday two for one offer on its signature O.G. Chicken and Waffle dish, made of succulent chicken tenders paired with a rosemary-infused waffle and topped with syrup and coleslaw. For a child-free evening, cosy up in the sophisticated Gin Nest, where 84 gins are available or head down to Theatre Impossible, Manchester’s immersive clubbing experience, to dance until the early hours.
