Lucardo Manchester The Prison Escape Game Review

Lucardo Manchester The Prison Escape Game Review: September 2019

A moody Manchester afternoon, location Virginia House, to take part in The Prison, NEW for 2019, an exciting, interactive and immersive escape game experience.  Including not just a full background story, but a continuing story development throughout your game play.

My gang of dodgy and underhanded criminals are down for being banged up into a Category A prison facility in Manchester after allegedly committing a series of crimes…of course we are innocent…well we like to think we are haha.

After a little convo and persuasion our connections on the inside are going to stage a riot providing the ideal opportunity for use to escape and get back to what we do best – crime!

With limited time, you need to deceive, lie and bribe to get out of this scumhole…getting a prison on side would be a good start, but that scum is hard to turn.

The Stoller Hall Manchester: Wind in the Willows & Lucy Rose – Review

The Stoller Hall Manchester: Wind in the Willows & Lucy Rose – Review: June 2019

The Stoller Hall concert venue based in Chetham’s School of Music, is right in the heart of Manchester city centre.

David Threlfall, star of Shameless and direct from the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Don Quixote, performed the central role of Mr Badger in this wonderful Wind in the Willows adaptation by Neil brand with Stephen Threlfall as the conductor.

Neil Brand’s marvellous musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows which was originally created as a radio drama by BBC Radio 4, follows the exciting and entertaining tales of Badger, Mole, Rat, Toad and friends.

Classic, charming and a sheer delightfully funny and fantastic delivery, of characterful river tales, trials and tribulations.  Plenty of gasps and giggles given even more oomph with live music, talented singers and scripts acted out with love.

An intriguing, interesting and immersive production.
