Mancs are traditionally quite a pasty bunch, I guess the combination of grey skies and widespread Irish ancestry hasn’t done our ability to withstand the sun any favours.
If you are both pasty and ginger - or tanned and ginger, as long as your hair is red - there’s a way you can avoid the onslaught of hot weather this weekend.
That’s right, Manchester is set to be hotter than Tenerife so you best run for the hills - provided there’s adequate shade there.
Chill Factore have got you covered - quite literally - this weekend, as they are letting redheads in for free.
Anyone with ginger hair can escape the scorching heat and literally chill at the -4°C attraction, with a choice of two activities - a Lift Pass for the slop and a session in their revamped Snow Park.
Chill Factore CEO Morwenna Angove said:
We’re always looking at ways to put our slope to good use, not many places in the UK can offer minus temperatures to cool down in during a heatwave. We’re delighted to throw open our doors and offer those with red hair a chance to escape from the heat and enjoy some fun in the snow. Every day is a snow day at Chill Factore even when it’s red hot outside.
