Finally, things are getting back to some form of normality. After almost four long months at home it is time to begin to get back out there. Of course, this can seem a bit daunting at first, but whether you fancy a relaxed reunion with some friends or perhaps hosting a dinner party, we’ve put together the perfect guide of things to do!
Number 1: Watch a movie with this retro-inspired drive-in cinema
Missed the cinema? This is the perfect opportunity to get the theatre experience whilst maintaining social distancing rules. Just like you’ve seen in the movies, these incredible drive-in cinemas are running throughout July and August! The sound is played through the car speakers – so no more noisy cinema-goers! You can even put your feet up! Book your tickets here.
Number 2: Escape to Freight Island
Located at Depot Mayfield, expect a brand-new urban market on steroids, this place has it all – outdoor food market, festival takeovers, immersive entertainment and terrace-style seating on one sprawling tact – a long-forgotten freight depot carved from the city’s industrial past. Phase one launches in mid-July 2020 with a limited capacity to 600 people, the rest of the site will be opening in August. Check it out here.
Number 3: Book a staycation
Travelling is not the easiest right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t explore our very own doorstep. Exploring the UK can be fun too, if your struggling for inspiration on where to stay check out Airbnb’s guide to their ‘most wish-listed’ properties – or head over to our Airbnb’s at The Jacksonheim Boutique.
Number 4: Doggy Heaven
An enormous new dog café will be opening in Greater Manchester – Alfie’s Island Café. For dog owners or simply just people who love dogs, everyone is welcomed. The café is set to open sometime this month, and we can’t wait!
