Escape Hunt Manchester Samurai Vs Viking: The Fourth Samurai and The Last Vikings Escape Rooms – Review

Get your game on at Escape Hunt Manchester city centre and prepare to become a super Samurai or victorious Viking.

Go back in time to ancient Japan, and prepare to defeat the evil warlord Tanaka Masamune, by order of the imperial emperor.

Protected by an all-powerful curse, Tanaka is no easy feat, steal his mysterious and magic stone from his sword and escape the dungeon to be victorious.

Prepare yourself warriors, as this is not all about physical strength, to win freedom, your mind must be sharper than the sword.

Channel your inner Viking, as your clan sits without protection and prepare for the onslaught from the Ice Giants.  Your only saviour is the Norse Gods, you need their help before it’s too late.

A long journey leads you to the Gods banqueting hall, but on entry your stomach sinks, as the Gods are off site on other God duties.

Desperation kicks in, as you only have one hour to summon the Gods, seek their protection, before the Ice Giants destroy your village.

Be bold, brave and a bountiful victory will be yours when you return to the village

Thank you for reading 😊

Known as Eoforwick to the Saxons, Eboracum to the Romans and then invaded by the Vikings who coined the name Jorvik, York is a city steeped in history and charm, an architectural Aladdin’s cave of all things historic, but is an ever-evolving city which offers a range of exciting events, activities, museums and restaurants.  Take on the wonderful wall walk and see if you can complete the complete circuit.

Where to stay

The Judges lodging

Think relaxed luxury, charm and elegance, the Judge’s Lodging located in an enviable postcode in the centre of York, in north-east England, perfectly situated in the main hub for easy access to all the city’s main attractions.

Eventually, after the passing of the owner, the building became the residence of judges attending the Assize court sessions and remained so until around 1976. This stunning residence has a restaurant, two bars and some super special character rooms.

The Clifton was a super sensational cosy classy room rich in detail and historic charm.  Décor a mix of subtle neutral shades, quality furnishings, fine fabrics with a touch of chic added with the fab vintage telephone.

York Theatre Royal, The Grand Old Dame of York – Review 

York Theatre Royal, The Grand Old Dame of York – Review: January 2019

For the final year, and in celebration of his 40th year, Berwick Kaler is staring as York’s legendary pantomime Dame in The Grand Old Dame of York.

Nice to see York Theatre Royal’s lovely, friendly and familiar faces, within the production, including Suzy Cooper, David Lenard and Martin Barrass.

Get your jazz hands and vocals at the ready and prepare to clap, cheer and boo this all-star cast who sing, “there’s no panto like this panto” and they are not wrong.

From the set, costumes and choreography to the cheesy slapstick family fun and dastardly capers, this panto offers substance with a quality performance throughout.

The man of the moment Berwick Kaler once again pulling off another exciting, energetic and entertaining performance – outstanding!  Another standout job came from Les Miserable, part-time dentist and full-time villain.  With his dastardly capers keeping York’s theatre crowds action infused and amused.

At the centre of the story, this villainess creature, Les Miserable, attempts to stop laughter in its tracks, Booooooo, but with upbeat bursts of musical mayhem and genuine hilarity throughout, giggles are plentiful and laugh out loud moments shall not be stopped.

Grab yourself a 40 years stunning souvenir brochure, jelly babies and concessions and prepare to be entertained.

Even though Berwick makes a break for it in the hot air ballon, The Grand Old Dame of York, at York Theatre Royal, is not full of hot air…this panto performance is pure pizzazz and perfection!  Best news you have not missed out, as the show must go on and continues until the 2nd of February 2019.

Make memorable moments, as on select days at York Theatre Royal, you can snap up the chance for a behind the scenes tour whereby you get the inside scoop on all the backstage action.

Personally, for me standing on the York Theatre Royal stage was a legendary moment that will never be forgot.  Mark Walters detailed set designs are mind-blowing and to see the wall of signatures was superb.
