The corridors of Manchester Town Hall are soon to be ringing with festive cheer at the Lord Mayor's annual Christmas concert.

Traditional hymms will be the order of the day, along with Christmas carols performed by the Manchester Cathedral Voluntary Choir, Saint John Fisher and Thomas More RC Primary School Choir from Benchill. A brass band will also be in attendance to fill the Town Hall with yuletide spirit,

Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Carl Austin-Behan said: 

“The Christmas Carol concert has become an unmissable highlight in the city’s festive calendar."

"As the cold winter nights draw in I’d like to invite everyone to enjoy the wonderful yuletide performances and maybe even a mince pie or two."

“The concert is the prefect antidote to the hustle and bustle of December and offers us all the chance to take a step back and remember the true meaning of Christmas.”

Following traditional carols including Hark! The Herald-Angels Sing and We Three Kings hymns including Come All Ye Faithful and While Shepherds Watch’d Their Flocks by Night will be read and festive activities will be concluded with tea, coffee and traditional mince pies of course! 

The Christmas Carol Concert also highlights the support The Lord Mayors Charity, We Love Manchester, provides to community projects across the city at Christmas and throughout the year.

If you wish to donate you can give a little at the end of the concert or simply text MANC00 with your donation. 

The concert will take place Thursday 8 December 7-8pm in the Great Hall at Manchester Town Hall.

Better yet, everyone's welcome and entry is free!
