Little Red World opened its doors to the good people of Manchester yesterday where the ever glamorous Virgin Atlantic cabin crew were joined by a very special honorary crew member…
Newly-wed Millie Mackintosh signed up as cabin crew for the day to open Little Red World – a three day pop-up travel experience in the heart of the city centre at the Virgin Money Lounge on Manchester's King Street.
Millie was wearing our famous red uniform which she truly made her own, complete with Bridget Bardot inspired up-do created by the wonderful Bumble and bumble team who have been running our stylish blow-dry destination, 'the styling bar'.
Celebrating our Little Red domestic service and the global connections it offers from Manchester to the rest of the world, Millie dazzled alongside the cabin crew who have been roaming the streets of Manchester giving members of the public the opportunity to win flights, Virgin Holidays, Upper Class amenity kits and goody bags.
During the opening day, cabin crew on the check-in desk boarded visitors to Little Red World who received free pampering sessions with CND Vinylux’s destination-themed nail designs, from Manhattan skylines to chic leopard print, and Bumble and bumble styled hair also themed around our long haul destinations.
If that wasn’t enough, at 6.30pm the Little Red World flight deck hosted a VIP party for the jetsetters of Manchester, including local businesses, media and celebrities, who all enjoyed an evening of champagne, canapés, a fun holiday themed photo booth and some exclusive treatments, as well as a packed goody bag on their way out.
Coronation Street’s Anthony Cotton, Hollyoaks’ Jorgie Porter, Kieron Richardson, Kirsty Leigh Porter and Jazmine Franks, singer and former X Factor contestant Carolynne Poole, and model Chloe Cummings all partied in Little Red World to celebrate the three day experience.
Little Red World is open 10am – 8pm Friday 4th and Saturday 5th October. Nail and hair styling appointments can be booked in store or via Littlered@fly.virgin.com. If you're in Manchester make sure you come and say hello!
