1ST PRIZE: A wonderful 3-night trip for two to Malta.

Set in the very heart of the Mediterranean, Malta is a unique island. It may be one of the smallest countries of the world, but its cultural offering is anything but miniscule. From the capital, Valletta, to the ages-old silent city of Mdina, Malta packs plenty of variety between its shores.

With over 3000 hours of sunshine a year it’s a perfect place to holiday to escape Manchester’s climate.

2ND PRIZE: 2 tickets for Professor Brian Cox Live at Manchester Arena on 13th September

Having set two Guinness World Record titles with his previous sell-out live UK and Ireland tour, Professor Brian Cox OBE, from Oldham is embarking on a world tour with his brand new show Universal: Adventures in Space and Time.

This entertaining live show will take audiences to the edge of our current understanding about the evolution of our solar system and universe.

3RD PRIZE: Meal for two at Albert Square Chop House

Albert Square Chop House in Thomas Worthington’s iconic Memorial Hall, bang in the heart of the City.

Built in 1866, listed, but long neglected, it’s now a brilliant dining pub and British restaurant with amazing food from chef  Carl Fraenkl-Rietti.
