All the fun of the fair – All under one roof!

The Easter Funfair will be taking place from April 13th – 22nd at Manchester Central. Not only does this great city centre venue mean we are easily accessible from across the North West, but it also means we can host all our rides inside – no need to worry about those April showers here!
There will be two sessions each day and your ticket includes unlimited goes on all the rides. As well as a whole host of rides you can also test your skills on a range of funfair games before tucking into some delicious food from one of our catering stalls.
The perfect family day out this Easter!
