Vietnam Airlines, in collaboration with The Hanoi Municipal People's Committee, yesterday announced the Vietnam Airlines Classic - Hanoi Concert 2018. Following the success of last year's inaugural event, Vietnam Airlines Classic - Hanoi Concert 2018 marks the return of more than 90 well-known artists from the London Symphony Orchestra - one of the best symphony orchestras in the world, led by one of the world's finest conductors, Elim Chan. LSO will bring a performance filled with musical virtuosity and enthusiasm.
Taking place at the Ly Thai To Statue and Garden in Hanoi's famous Hoan Kiem District, from 7.00pm – 9.00pm on Saturday 6 October 2018, the concert will showcase the beauty of Vietnam; its people; and its thousand-year old capital Hanoi - a city of peace, and a world-class destination for international cultural events. The event will also be brought to an even larger audience via big screens placed in locations including Hoan Kiem Lake, Dinh Tien Hoang Street and Tonkin Free School Square.
This annual event will bring world-class cultural and artistic works to local audiences, as well as serving as a cultural bridge connecting Vietnam, and its capital Hanoi, to the world - not only in terms of tourism, but also as a country, and city, of rich cultural traditions and identity.
Lightwater Valley is set to be transformed into 'Frightwater Valley' as part of its spooky Halloween celebrations (October 27th-31st).
The North Yorkshire theme park will be hosting a series of spooktacular events and activities designed to appeal to visitors of all ages.
From family-friendly scares to truly terrifying encounters there's something for everyone to enjoy.
For younger visitors there will be Spooky Character Meet and Greets, Scary Magic Shows and Trick or Treat Doors.
Visitors can also join in the frightful fun as part of the Halloween Fancy Dress Competition which will be taking place on the Lightwater stage between 3pm-3.30pm each day.
For the more intrepid there's the chance to enjoy some grown-up thrills and chills inside the Live Scare Maze in the Events Hall and the Scare Maze Walkthrough in the Marquee; both of which will be open for risky business from 1pm.
The mazes are definitely not for the faint-hearted and are not suitable for children under the age of 12 due to the extreme nature of the scares.
The scares culminate with the Frightwater Finale lakeside fireworks spectacular (6pm Saturday, 5.30pm Sunday-Wednesday).
With over 35 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, Lightwater Valley Theme Park is one of the UK's most popular theme parks.
Among its signature rides is the 1.5 mile long Ultimate rollercoaster – the longest coaster ride in Europe - and the Eagle's Claw aerial ride.
Step into the shadows. Throw down your garlic. Put away those crucifixes. They’re of no use in warding off the newest challenge at The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience this Halloween*; The Blood Baron - a time vampire, rising to menace the maze!
The Blood Baron is the sworn enemy of all resident maze masters and has them quaking in their sequinned boots. As a time vampire, he will use his powers to steal time from competing teams in the maze.
Be warned, the Blood Baron is a master of manipulation, and betrayal is his greatest weapon. He will never miss a chance to try and trick you into betraying your own team, and for those willing to accept the Blood Barons traitorous missions, leaving their teammates screaming “BUT WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT???”, there will be both reward and redemption.
Your senses will need to be on high alert as the Blood Baron will be lurking in the shadows of the maze and creeping up behind you when you least expect it. For the ultra-competitive, adventure-seekers the stakes are raised; as if a team loses a game, they also lose a crystal, and, in the event of a lock in, the price is two crystals for release rather than the usual one.
Can you take on the maze and defeat the Blood Baron at the same time?
Will your teammates betray you?
Or, will you become the traitor?
In addition to the challenges within the Maze’s Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Futuristic themed zones, you’re guaranteed a spooky Halloween experience much more frightening than a haunted house and unquestionably more adventurous than your typical trick-or-treat outing.
With two attractions, one in London** and one in Manchester***, be sure to book tickets in advance if you’re planning a visit to The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience this Halloween or October half term.
