Toilet Talk and a Big Night Out

You know how it is. You have a couple of drinks, you need the loo. The first toilet trip of the evening normally comes a couple of hours into it, but then once the seal is broken you're up and down to the loo more often than, erm, someone who needs to wee a lot, but not as often as you.

Constant toilet trips on a night out are annoying enough. But imagine having to fight your way through a crowded pub to the toilet in a wheelchair. Now imagine getting to the toilet with a bladder like a water balloon, only to discover that there is no accessible toilet. Unbelievable as it may sound, this is the way of things in many pubs and clubs all over Manchester.

In fact, over half of our city's pubs and clubs do not have an accessible toilet, which means that many of the North West's 400,000 disabled people won't be able to spend a penny after a drink on a night out.

"So why are you telling me all this?" You might ask. "What can I do about it?" Good question, I'm glad you asked. Well, Scope North West is holding a Big Night Out in April to find out just how accessible a night out is for disabled people in the region.

On Friday 28th April Scope will be holding a Big Night Out Treasure Hunt to call time on disablism. The night will start at 7pm in the Rovers Return, and teams will be challenged to survey as many pubs and leisure venues in Manchester City Centre in an allotted time while gathering treasure. The prize for the winning team will be an exclusive Coronation Street experience.

Scope are encouraging teams of four to raise money by getting sponsored for various challenges such as doing the treasure hunt in fancy dress, to support Scope North West's work in the region.

Following the treasure hunt there will be a Big Night Out After Party for everyone involved, supported by Cains Brewery.
