The Freakbeats Club @ The Flying Duck - Glasgow
Take things back in time for a 1960s take on Easter celebrations.

It’s a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere and you’ll feel immediately welcome. It’s free before 11pm too.
Trevor Chance’s Legends - Blackpool
Is it cheesy? Is it camp? Or just brilliant? Whatever your take on celebrity tribute acts, Trevor Chance’s Legends show at the The Sands Venue 3-5 April is sure to bring a smile to your face. This Easter Special brings a massively entertaining show of Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and Freddie Mercury looky-likeys to the stage. We think you’ll love it.
Easter Markets - Prague
Fancy something a little more adventurous this Easter? Why not head to Manchester airport and grab a direct flight to Prague and take in the famous Easter markets. They run from 1 March to 12 April at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square and there is loads to see, do and eat. Wooden huts display wonderful local crafts including beautifully dressed puppets and dolls, and you can get a brightly coloured, personalised hand-painted Easter egg. And remember to try the trdelník, a delicious hot, sugar coated pastry.
