Hatch, Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7ED – Visit Now
It’s that wonderful time of the year again when the city of Manchester becomes so full of Christmas cheer you can practically taste it. Not to be left out, Oxford Road’s Hatch complex has a stocking-full of treats for everyone to explore.
Hatch has grown considerably from the early days of just three traders in 2017. Hatch is now home to ten times as many independent businesses. For the first proper winter celebrations in a long time, every stall has pulled out all the stops to make up for last year. Not to mention what Hatch itself has to offer in the coming weeks. On the centre stage will be live music for the entire season, performing everything from a brass band rendition of classic carols to throwback hours of 80s tunes, with plenty more special events being lined up.

With the advent of the holiday season, the Hatch kitchens have concocted Christmas creations that’ll be available for a limited time only. Long-time residents Parmageddon has a unique take on Christmas dinner, including a “Christmas Swan” of molten cheese and chicken. Alongside this, you can get their special ‘slaw, as well as a serving of their famed chicken and bacon gravy. On the flipside, vegan magicians Herbivorous have used their signature seitan recipe to create a version of “turkey” served either as a traditional Christmas dinner or on top of loaded fries.
T’arricirri, one of the first to take up a spot at Hatch, have also thrown in their Sicilian twist on the season; and you can soothe your sweet tooth with Biscuit & Brew’s latest picture-perfect dessert.
Not just filling the belly, Hatch is warming the souls of visitors with drinks and cocktails fitting for the occasion. Find a window at the front serving mugs of hot-buttered-rum and mulled wine or cider to start the festive season. You can keep the buzz going as you take a seat and order some of the latest original cocktails made by vendor “12ten”. On their new menu, the Biscoff Martini in particular, is a must-try concoction.
