Manchester’s biggest indoor Easter funfair is giving you the chance to win a £2000 family holiday


The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here.

This weekend, the city centre’s biggest indoor Easter funfair will come to life at Manchester Central – promising all the fun of the fair under one roof!

And they’ve just announced that there are some pretty awesome prizes up for grabs for families attending the event this month.

Manchester’s only national station, Hits Radio, has teamed up with Stagecoach to giveaway a jaw-dropping £2000 towards a family holiday of your choosing from Miss Ellies Travel.

Plus, there’s the chance to win tons of other fantastic prizes that organisers are keeping tight-lipped about.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do to enter the competition is to attend the Easter funfair this April and visit the Hits Radio stand.

Kicking off with a grand opening on 13th April, Easter loving families looking for something to do with the kids over the holidays needn’t look any further.

Visiting Manchester for 10 full days of fun-packed family entertainment, there’s plenty of time to book tickets and visit during the school holidays.

The indoor funfair boasts 25 rides and games, from classic carousels and dodgems to bigger thrill-seekers perfect to get the adrenaline pumping!

From a dragon roller coaster to a giant fun house, whether you prefer rides you get strapped into or ones you can explore, your kids’ biggest struggle will be deciding which ones to go on first.

But at this funfair you don’t need to fret. Unlimited rides passes come as standard with every ticket, meaning you could have a go on every single one of them – and once you’ve found your favourites, go back and revisit them as much as you like.

With rides suitable for all heights and ages, there’s something for all the kids to enjoy.

There will also be a soft play centre packed with fun inflatables for the younger ones to jump around on – and hopefully tire themselves out for the journey home.

Plus, Hits Radio will also be providing some photo opportunities for any radio lovers who fancy posing for some studio shots.

The Easter event also promises some tasty food stalls in authentic funfair style, so you and your loved ones can dig into candy floss, hot dogs and popcorn. They had us at candy floss, TBH.

And with the funfair taking place in the Central Hall, you’ll be shielded from those pesky April showers – no need to wear a rain mac.

Running from Saturday 13th April until Monday 22nd April, there will be two sessions a day – 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm.

Tickets cost £15 for single admission and £54 for a family pass, with free entry for children under age three – and tickets include unlimited goes on all the rides.

And for those of you that are last-minute, tickets are also available to buy on the door – however it’s advised where possible to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Easily accessible via public transport, the metrolink stops right outside the venue – and for those of you that are driving, there’s a great deal on parking at the Manchester Central NCP. Prebook to get five hours parking for just £5 when you buy your pass.

After visiting the Easter funfair, your kids won’t want to go anywhere else this school holiday, so book your tickets now for some unforgettable Easter fun!
