Manchester is an extremely diverse city and has something on offer for everyone this Christmas and New Year.
Why not take the family down to the magical Bridgewater Hall to experience the eagerly awaited Hallé Christmas concerts. Beginning on 6 December, these magical concerts will be full of orchestral antics and plenty of surprises.
After the big day, on 29 December, the Hallé pays tribute to the world's great Superheroes featuring Batman, Superman, The Incredibles and many more.
For the ultimate 'feel-good' start to 2016, join Manchester Camerata for its glittering New Year's Day Viennese concert.
Experience an alternative side to the festive season, and make the short journey across to Chester Zoo which is celebrating the festive season with their much loved Lantern Magic event.
Enjoy the traditional night time journey around the zoo along with some added extras to add a little sparkle.
