1. Dinner at FireFly

Visit our neighbours at FireFly (FoodWell during the day) for LA inspired dishes, Cali tapas and a delicious selection of cocktails! After 6 pm, FireFly comes alive with an enchanting, late-night concept. Your mum is guaranteed to fall in love with the low hanging, bewitching roof forrest and immersive atmosphere just as much as the food itself.

2. Entertainment at The Comedy Store

4. Cocktails at 20 Stories

If you’re looking for a cocktail with a view, 20 Stories is the ideal spot. The outdoor terrace is the perfect location to soak up those city views, and a few drinks! On Sunday 22nd March, 20 stories will have a live soul band playing throughout the afternoon in collaboration with Kiehl’s King Street Manchester and they’ll have a special MOM (Mum’s of Manchester) cocktail available.

5. Relax at Bali Health Lounge

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good old pamper. Chinatown’s Bali Health Lounge offers the ideal setting to truly relax in. Your mum will be treated to a cup of herbal tea before her treatment begins. Choose from a selection of massages or beauty treatments – from facials to hot stone massages or complete wellness packages.

6. Post-screening discussion at Home

If your mum enjoys nothing more than kicking back and watching a film, why not take her to watch Eight Women at Home? It’s a deliciously camp game of Cluedo featuring a full star line up of France’s leading ladies in diva mode. Isolated in a snow-bound house where a man has been murdered, all are suspects… and all of them have a chance to sing! After the screening, there will be an informal post-screening discussion.

7. Sunday Roast at Oast House

For a proper slap-up roast, take your mum to Oast House. Choose between rotisserie-roasted beef, chicken, pork or lamb partnered with honey-mustard glazed carrots, braised red cabbage, Tenderstem broccoli, roast potatoes, a homemade Yorkshire pudding and rotisserie. The whole shebang. Enjoy your roast to the sound of live music throughout the day.
