Seeing as my blog is titled the Maisie Mouse ‘ Adventures’ it seems pretty fitting that I should try out the Buckt experience subscription box. And I was not disappointed.
The Buckt subscription box includes 5 activities specially chosen for your location (so for us, Manchester) all for the price of just £25 per month – that’s over an activity every weekend.
The activities will be a total surprise until they arrive at your door step, but can vary from anything from visiting an alpaca farm to tickets to a rugby game.
Unfortunately, we were only able to try out two of the activities as we had so much scheduled in these past few weeks. But if you’ve got free weekends ahead, it’s definitely well worth the price.
Frog & Bucket Comedy Club
We chose this activity as we’ve enjoyed going to comedy clubs in the past, across Liverpool and London – but never in Manchester!
Needless to say, we had a great night. The demographic was fairly mixed (lots of young couples, parties of older women and students with their friends).
Some of the topics covered are fairly controversial, so you will need to have a VERY open mind to fully appreciate the comedy. Luckily for us, this wasn’t a problem. Also – fingers crossed you aren’t on the front row as you will get picked on!
Paired with a bottle of wine, this made a great night.
If you know me well, you’ll know that i’ve never been all too keen of golf, purely because I just didn’t get it before. But I can safely say that after beating Kieran (by quite a lot) my mind has now been changed.
The venue was really cool, based in the Printworks (just outside the Arndale) and is all rainforest themed. When you arrive, you’ll get to choose from one of two courses, with about 17 holes per course.
When the course got a little full, we normally just skipped ahead and came back to play the hole again later.
You also have the opportunity at the end of the course to shoot a ‘hole in one’ and win a free round. Unfortunately, neither of us were successful, but still a really fun experience.
If this sounds like something you’d love to try, you can get your first box half price with my discount code MAISIEMOUSEADVENTURES
This was a gifted opportunity.
