Builders uncovered a 30-year-old nuclear bunker under Trafford town hall as part of its multi-million pound renovation. I remember the first time we got in I was totally in awe of the Bowie and Ferry lookalikes and the Roxy girls in satin pencil skirts and pill box hats. To us it all felt deliciously decadent." This handy service will be here to help with a dedicated team of volunteers from a number of North West charities from December 14th – 21st.

Now, there’s not much in the way of actual evidence of these tunnels even existing except for a few passing mentions in some dusty old books or on the lips of some dusty old nuns. But speculation is rife that there are extensive passageways that lead from Manchester Cathedral to a variety of locations around the city and its outskirts. The underground market was accessed via escalators and it's believed its closure in 1989 was caused by the nearby Arndale Centre becoming more popular. Since then, half of the space has been transformed into a Tesco store, but the other half remains untouched. The layout inside had balconies overlooking the dance floor area – after all, it was an old amphitheatre. Located inside the Theatre Royal building on Peter Street, it became Discotheque Royale in the ’70s, before it was rebranded as Coliseum and later, M-Two. The club closed its doors for good in 2009. Dave McLaughlin Speculation is rife as to who built it, maintained it and even used it – with some believing it started as an old Roman tunnel used to transport togas, sandals and those little gold coins with Caesar’s face on them from one place to another – later being improved upon around 200-300 years ago.

Open now until January 1st, 2024, attractions include teacups, a caterpillar rollercoaster and funhouse. There is also the thrilling Snow Jets ride or the Starflyer, as well as a brand new attraction VOID – calling all you dare devils! The bunker at Worsley was part of this web, with the next nearest at Frodsham. The two-storey square structure at Worsley is a main operations room surrounded by eight reinforced concrete rooms and a viewing gallery. It would have had its own electricity supply and ample space for stores of food.
