The Best Christmas Events in Manchester 2017

There’s magic in the air as the nights are growing chilly – it’s nearly that time of year again when the kids are writing to Santa and you’re thinking about what to get your relatives this Christmas. We may not be able to give you gift advice, but we can definitely tell you the best festive events this year for all the family.


The Ice Rink

4th November | Cathedral Gardens

Have a magical night skating away on the famous ice rink. A perfect treat for the family, it’s a load of fun!


Christmas Markets

10th November | Albert Square

It’s not really Christmas without a trip to the magical markets this year. For unique handmade gifts, homely treats, or a mulled wine to warm your bones, this is a must to visit.



Lanterns at Chester Zoo

24th November | Chester Zoo

As twilight falls, the zoo will be transformed into an enchanting world full of bright illuminations and spellbinding theatrical adventure. As well as colourful zoo characters, you may catch a glimpse of Santa!


Etsy Made Local

1st December | People’s History Museum

If you love buying your friends and family authentic one-of-a-kind presents then this the perfect day out to get your Christmas shopping sorted – without waiting for delivery! And entry into the museum is free so there’s even more reason to take a friend.


Coca Cola Truck

1st & 2nd December | Intu Trafford Centre

It’s not officially Christmas until you see the Coca Cola truck – and this year you can take the kids to see it for real in December. And not only will they get to see the famous truck, they’ll also get a free can of any Coca Cola flavour.
