Father’s Day in Manchester and the North

Ben Williams

Father’s Day is quickly approaching, but resist the urge to reach for the credit card and start desperately tapping away on Amazon. Let’s face it, your Dad doesn’t need a new tie, a novelty pair of socks or the most passably drinkable whiskey in your price range. Get out and about and spend some quality time with the Old Man.

Here are our picks

  • 1. Manchester House

  • 2. Piccadilly Records

    Whether it will actually ever touch a needle or not is irrelevant, let your Dad relive the youthful joy of unwrapping a fresh slab of vinyl. Hey, Roger Waters even has a new record out. Alternatively, Eastern Bloc Records cater for the more hardcore Dads out there.

  • 3. The Briton’s Protection
