Manchester is proud to do things a bit differently – the music, the clothes, the islands populated by Gnomes, and, now, a space-themed roller disco. The great, deranged, minds behind Junkyard Golf are of course bringing together celestial aesthetics and 1980s novelty transport. It’s the duo you didn’t even know you needed.

The aptly named Paradise Skate World brings a 4,500 sq.ft. rink to the buzzing Deansgate area of Manchester. With late openings, lurid-looking cocktails and bar snacks on offer, it’s looking to be a worthwhile addition to the Manchester events galaxy. Okay, we’ll stop with the space puns now.
