What to do in Manchester. Christmas Period 2013

6th December 2013 Posted by numagoo

The closing of another busy week, we hope you aren’t feeling too defeated by the dreadful weather. As the weekend is supposed to be much calmer (note: always sceptic over Manchester weather predictions) we have put together events and attractions that are well worth a visit come rain or shine!

Not just for Christmas. 7th – 8th December. The Contemporary Art Society launches its first ever selling exhibition with work by over 20 emerging and established artists. The society began four years ago with the goal of bringing together the rich diversity of artistic talent in our region. The weekend’s event gives you the opportunity to buy a unique gift for yourself or a loved one and to discover new artists.

Carol Service at Salford Cathedral. 11th December. Escape the busy markets and bring the whole family along for a carol service hosted by the Ceremonial Mayor of Salford. The festive event features members of the BBC Philharmonic, the Greater Manchester Police band and local school children. Step away from the shops and take some time to reflect and relax in this busy period. The event is free but tickets are required.

Hibernate, Spinningfields. Hibernate is located in the heart of Spinningfields, the perfect winter bar for cold shoppers/punters. Designed to have a contemporary log cabin feel it is the perfect festive evening. The season cocktails and food menu add to the sleigh bells effect.  It is next to the annual Spinningfield ice rink so drinkers can watch the ice skating action from the reclaimed timber booths inside or the fire pit outside. We warn you it does get very busy, so book ahead if you can!

As always let us know if you head down to any of the places mentioned in our blog. Also, if you know of any events or hidden gems contact us and we’d be delighted to include them in our upcoming blog posts.
