OUR MANCHESTER MAZE TO GET A PRIDE MAKEOVER
Our Manchester Maze has pledged to show its pride for the Man-chester Pride Festival, which takes place between 24th to 27th August, by helping raise money for LGBT+ causes in Greater Manchester.
Anyone visiting the Manchester Maze between 22nd and 26th August will notice some pride-esque updates to the décor as the Manchester-based attraction will be giving its maze a colorful makeover to show its support for Manchester Pride.
Be sure to spot the rainbow flag on the eccentric Maze Masters’ clothing and throughout the four different zones as the iconic maze will be transformed into a rainbow beacon of inclusion as part of The Big Weekend which forms part of The Manchester Pride Festival, which runs 24th to 27th August.
Plus, when crawling, running and sliding your way around the interactive attraction, keep your eyes peeled for a few custom-made pink crystals and snag them as each crystal won results in a £5 donation by The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience to Manchester Pride – but don’t worry if you can’t secure these custom crystals as the attraction will be fundraising to support the charity either way.
The Crystal Maze LIVE team will also be in full force as part of the Manchester Pride Parade on the 25th August with a walking entry complete with banners, flags and gold glittery tokens with a few surprises too.
Pollyanna Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at the attraction said: “Manchester Pride is a great charity and the bank holiday weekend event, including the Manchester Pride Parade, is an incredible initiative to be part of. The charity supports the LGBT+ people throughout the year community and organises a flagship event– but relies on donations to make this happen. We’re proud to do our bit in supporting Manchester Pride as well as helping our guests and visitors to celebrate it at the Maze!
“As the rainbow flag symbolises the mixed LGBT+ community, with the colours themselves symbolising life (red), healing (orange), sunlight (yellow), nature (green), harmony (blue) and spirit (purple/ violet), we hope our finishing touches to the Maze helps to bring this same joy to our visitors.”
Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive for Manchester Pride, said: “We love to see support from partners across the city during the Manchester Pride Festival. The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience is a brilliant attraction for the city – I really enjoyed the whole experience when I visited the Maze.
“These donations are greatly appreciated, and the creative activation really brings home what an inclusive and supportive community we have. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Crystal Maze team’s entry in our world famous Parade.”
