Honey Monster Reports – Saturday 26 December

Every Saturday I look at something fun you can do with your mum and dad or brother or sister or Aunty Marge and Uncle Tom or Nanny or Grandad or someone else, to get out of the house and do something fun.  Monsters don’t like staying indoors, we’re too big anyway it’s a lot nicer to be able to stretch out and run around, don’t you think?

Today’s Monster Day Out is……. Old Trafford!

Glory, glory, Man United
Glory, glory, Man United
Glory, glory, Man United
And the reds go marching on, on, on!

Hee hee! Well if you know that song you might know where our Monster Day Out is today – that’s right – Old Trafford! Old Trafford

  • Old Trafford is the name of the Manchester United football stadium.
  • It’s nickname is ‘The Theatre of Dreams’, as the stadium has seen so many of the best players, teams and football contests over nearly 100 years.
