Three to see this weekend: contortionists, coffee house yoga and an evening with Eric

If you missed The Chainsmokers in town on Thursday, don’t sweat it. There’s lots of other good stuff going on this weekend. Once you’ve watched an old school circus and taken a few selfies with a football legend, scope out the Sunday morning yoga class to get those chakras aligned.

Head down to the Moscow State Circus

After a Saturday shopping spree at the Trafford Centre, why not head down for a little circus action at Event City? Expect to see everything from contortionists performing inside giant bubbles, unicyclists defying gravity and foot jugglers performing jaw dropping balancing acts. Grab a drink and take a seat in the new state of the art centrally heated theatre to watch a show that is both mesmerising and funny. You’ll be on the edge of your seat, screaming as each new act takes the stage. Don’t blame us if you’ve lost your voice come Monday morning.

Get your yoga and juice on at Foundation Coffee House

Get your vinyasa on, align those chakras and head down to Foundation Coffee House for a Sunday morning yoga sesh. Is there a better way to close out the weekend? Breathe in and breathe out, perfect some downward dogs and dolphin stretches and then sip on the green stuff that’s good for you before heading home. This event is open to all ages, fitness levels and fashion senses, so if you’ve been hiding those snazzy neon spanx in the back of your wardrobe, now’s your chance to get them out.

Spend an evening with Eric at The Lowry

United fans, get excited. This weekend Eric is in town. No, not Djemba-Djemba or even Bailly. The other one. He will be taking the stage at The Lowry for a rare public appearance where he’ll be dishing the dirt on those heady days when he helped the Reds to four Premier League titles in five seasons. He was and, frankly, still is a firm favourite. Fans still sing his name at almost every game so, instead of trying to sneak a selfie with him at Old Trafford, you can guarantee a quality photograph at this event. Mind you, tickets don’t come cheap. You could be shelling out £200 for a front row seat. Ouch. If you’re a fan, though, this is the perfect event to seal your appreciation.
