T'was the gig before Christmas at Z-arts, Manchester, 4 December 2022, from £9.00 - Book now

‘Twas the GIG before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…* 
A magical grotto in a land far, far away
decided to celebrate Christmas the musical way! 

On Sunday 4 December, get your best, most sparkly Christmas outfits on (and your dancing shoes!) and join fantastic singer/songwriter Yemi Bolatiwa and her band at T’was the gig before Christmas at Z-arts, Manchester, and enjoy an epic, musical Christmas celebration for the whole family, with some familiar festive friends.

Families and children of all ages are invited to this secret Christmas gig at Z-arts, which will be attended by naughty elves taking a break from all their present wrapping and other mystical Lapland creatures who’ve travelled all the way from the Northern hemisphere to Manchester. They’ve journeyed across ferocious seas and icy lands, through snow, hale, wind and rain, to celebrate the most wonderful time of year with you and your family. You can expect a truly dazzling afternoon packed with festive joy, music and mesmerising story-telling, told through songs and dance.

There will be laughter, music, dancing and most of all, FUN at this special, melodic Christmas event at Z-arts, but those pesky elves have a very important request – you must NOT tell Santa about the party! He’s busy with all his Christmas present-packing, or so they think…

So for an exciting, family Christmas experience to get you in the festive spirit this December, book your tickets for T’was the Gig Before Christmas at Z-arts through the link below.
