Tunnels under Manchester

November 6th, 2009

This Halloween, sick of the usual half assed attempt to dress up, we decided to do Halloween properly.

In anticipation of an evening of ghosts and ghouls, we booked our place on Manchester Confidential’s Ghost tour in the tunnels, the tour guide was Manchester Confidential?s editor and qualified tour guide Jonathan Schofield.

All in all, it was really fun, especially deep in the darkest dark when we turn off all our torches.

I managed to grab a few cool pictures, and I’m in good company as the tunnels were photographed by Andrew Brook’s for his Hidden Manchester photo exhibiton at Urbis.

Illegal Rave

November 1st, 2009

This Halloween was an active one and probably the best I’ve had yet. After escapades down the tunnels and a couple of drinks in Joshua Brooks Contort Yourself, we received a phone call to alert us to an illegal rave occurring at what turned out to an industrial estate unit (and an expensive cab ride!).

Our curiosity was peaked and we couldn’t resist popping our head in to see just exactly what happens at this kind of thing.

Safe to say we were surprised to find that an illegal warehouse rave actually does what it says on the tin.

A blatant disregard for basic health and safety and rather impressive sound system, makes for an experience that felt like it belonged in a movie.
