New Phenomenon Across Manchester Means Office Workers Get A Boogie At Lunchtime
A new phenomenon which has hit Manchester could be going worldwide after its popularity means that many office workers had the best lunch hour possible.
The new trend involves a lunch hour party for office workers. Instead of sitting at your desk browsing the Internet at lunchtime, or sitting out in your car getting bored, the event which is held in the centre of Manchester invites people to come in and have a dance at a club.
There's no alcohol served in the bar, but a fresh wrap and healthy water to keep you going. Many people have said how exciting this lunch hour is while others say that it is great for you to completely let your hair down for an hour in the middle of your work day.
Chris Lloyd, who brought the event to Manchester, said, "When you dance you're not thinking about work. This is a chance to stop staring at a screen for an hour and properly switch your brain off. The Hacienda may now be a car park but Manchester and clubbing has moved on."
The nature of the one hour event means that you need to start dancing as soon as you get into the club. This is so not a minute is wasted of your precious lunch hour.
Many people turn up to the event in their shirts and ties looking very smart and come with perfume and towels to ensure that they return to work looking just as smart.
Some employers are even praising the event saying that their employees are working more efficiently after going off for an hour and completely detaching themselves from work.
The music that is played at the event varies considerably but at the last event many people heard Donna summer and Sister Sledge being belted out of the sound system just before they were about to return to work.
It is thought that many more of these events are going to take place up and down the country and especially across the USA where it has particularly taken off.
Local business TopSkips, who specialise in supplying a range of residential and commercial skips in Manchester, commented on the trend, “We think it is great news that people are able to let their hair down of a lunch hour and really escape from the stresses and strains of their work. We would be more than happy to work with these events in the clear up and the construction of the event as presumably skips would be required at some stage either prior or post event.”
