Trade in the standard weekend brunch for an afternoon that'll have you noshing on delicious food and sipping on unlimited booze whilst surrounded by some hella sexy men. Not only will there be topless butlers to wait on you but there'll also be a number of male dancers, acrobats and strippers as well as a fantastic drag host.

Held at a top secret Manchester location, this unique party brings together free-flowing cocktails, excellent tunes and three delicious courses of top-notch Caribbean cuisine. Shake up your usual weekend with some antics here.
