Beyond its reputation as a city for music, Manchester's live entertainment transcends across a range of disciplines. From legendary sports clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City, to legendary club nights like The Warehouse Project, there's plenty on offer up north.
The Easter weekend is a time for reflection and celebration so make sure to enjoy it in Manchester where the city will be alive with events to promise an eggscellent time.
Manchester's lively theatre scene is the ideal place to go hunting - if not for chocolate, then for entertainment gold. You can enjoy a play or musical at the Palace Theatre or Royal Exchange, watch comedians try to beat the gong at the Frog and Bucket or head to the VUE Printworks or the Great Northern Odeon to catch the latest Easter blockbuster.
Manchester's famous music venues won't be closing down just because it's Easter weekend. On the contrary, indie venues like YES, the Deaf Institute and Soup Kitchen may well be hosting festivals where you can discover up-and-coming artists. There's always the chance that a total superstar will be dropping by the Manchester Arena too.
The Easter weekend is a prime weekend for sport and that's where Manchester really excels. Why not pick up a ticket for a match of either of Manchester's world-class football clubs, Manchester City and Manchester United. Alternatively, you could head to Old Trafford to see Lancashire CCC in action or the Altrincham Ice Dome to catch the city's ice hockey team Manchester Storm.
Once all that is done with, there will no doubt be club nights galore to enjoy at Manchester's great nightclubs. When the Easter weekend is over with, you too will feel like you've risen again.
