Delicious dining, gift experiences and more – the perfect present this Father’s Day
Father’s Day is on Sunday 18 June. Not sorted anything yet? No worries, Manchester’s Corn Exchange has already done the thinking for you. All that’s left is for you to pick the pressie that suits your dad down to the ground.
Sixes Social Cricket
Bowl dad over with a surprise booking for Sixes Social Cricket. As well as sixes, wickets and a chance for the big man to show off his sporting prowess, there are also retro arcade games and a pool table to lock horns over. And after all that competitive sport, enjoy a meal together. Think wood-fired pizza and burger-topped cricket bats.
Tampopo Cooking Class
Take dad to Tampopo for dinner – a great present in itself – and then surprise him with tickets for a Tampopo cooking course for the two of you. If he fancies himself as a foodie, this is the ideal gift. Quality time, great memories and some nifty new skills so you can cook up a storm together in your own kitchen too.
Banyan Bohemian Rhapsody Event
If the father figure in your life loves a bit of Freddie Mercury falsetto, then tickets to Banyan’s Bohemian Rhapsody event will be just the thing. You’ll have to plan ahead because it’s not actually on Father’s Day, but on the Friday beforehand but for a music lover it’s worth getting creative with the dates.
Give dad the brush off this Father’s Day. No, we’re not being unkind – we mean tickets to a painting party. Daub your own design together and enjoy something totally different. Let your DIY hero unleash his creative side for a change. It’s more fun than painting the bathroom ceiling.
Escape Room Experience
Lock dad up for Father’s Day. To be honest, he’d probably enjoy the peace and quiet. What we actually mean is why not buy your dad an Escape Hunt experience so he can pit his wits against the clock? He’ll have bragging rights if he gets out – and you can rib him if he doesn’t. Unless you join in the fun and you can put your brains together to see if your genetic material is up to the challenge.
Why not take dad to the National Museum of Football for a cheaper alternative – it’s free for Manchester residents. Then you could take advantage of one of the dining deals at the Corn Exchange. The Real Greek is giving away free baklava to dads who dine on Sunday 18 June and Pizza Express is running a pizza and Peroni for £15.95 offer for club members. Membership is free – just download the app.
Dad, pa, or any father figure, whoever you’re celebrating, do it with the Corn Exchange.
