Christmas Concerts 2019


Join the Hallé this festive season! From much loved Hallé traditions to spectacular celebrations there really is something for everyone.

The Hallé Choir will be in glorious voice for our annual performance of Handel’s Messiah, as well as joining forces with our Youth Choir and Children’s Choir for a spectacular trio of traditional Carol Concerts. If you prefer the Christmas hits, soprano Jennifer France joins us for an evening featuring all your festive favourites in A Christmas Cracker.

Our Christmas Family Concert returns, along with our screenings of The Snowman with live orchestra accompanied by a cosmic adventure with an Alien Party on Planet Zum-Zee.

There’s more to come after the big day Skyfall in Concert, a screening complete with a spectacular live orchestra accompaniment. Then conductor Richard Sidwell and four superstar vocalists bring the music of Queen to The Bridgewater Hall stage. Finally, waltzing off into 2020 for New Year on the Danube.
