OKS says YES at YES, Manchester, 31 December 2018, from £6 - Book now

Thought boozing and dancing on New Year’s Eve since little people came along was a thing of the past? Lucky for us that a cunning collaboration between legendary purveyors of knees up with your nippers Our Kids Social and Manchester’s super cool new music venue YES means we can have it all (sort of).

Afternoon hedonism is where it’s at these days anyway. Honest.

We can’t think of many better ways to while away a few hours exploring this recently restored former auctioneer’s than eating, drinking, crafting and throwing some shapes together.

In the Pink Room the Our Kids Social DJ will be playing disco festival tunes while Papertown Crafts will be encouraging artistic talent young and old. Oops a Daisy Circus Skills will be encouraging some flamboyant performance here too.

Head down to the Basement for the trademark Our Kids Social Silent Disco experience. Two channels of choices include guilty pleasures for the adults and kids’ pop.  Dancefloor challenges to keep everyone on their toes include seeing how low you can all go under the limbo bar and if you know all the fortnite moves. Expect to find some fun accessories and clobber to sport too.

A special New Year’s Eve enchanted trail takes you on a tour to explore YES’s incredible historical building and more activities are to be announced.

The venue (and bar) is open from midday with the event running from 1-3. A pizza slice and drink are included with every child’s ticket. YES’s food offer is run by fine pop-ups Firebird Hope and Pepperoni Playboy meaning plenty of fuel for bigger as well as little bellies alike.
