Christmas Theatre and Concerts

Creative Tourist

Auditoriums and concert halls all across the North are now selling their Christmas theatre and concerts, and it is best to plan ahead as the top tickets sell out faster than Santa on a speeding sleigh.

This year the theatre stocking is well and truly stuffed with a mix of reimagined Broadway classics, exciting new stories and traditional family favourites, while carols and hymns are performed by the North’s finest orchestras and ensembles. Here are our picks of the very best festive-themed theatre productions and concerts.
