When you think about it, is there a better day for a hangover than Christmas Day? A bit of hair of the dog, an extra helping of pigs in blankets, and laughs with your family - if there’s any day to be rough, it’s Christmas Day. So why not head out for some pre-Christmas fun this year? Even if you fancy a tame one, there are loads of Christmas eve events in Manchester that’ll show you a mint time. 

Head out to a club or rave for one last dance with your mates before spending the holidays with your family. Or maybe kick off the festivities early at a pantomime or theatre performance. Or, since you’ll probably be fed up with cooking after Christmas, treat yourselves to a Christmas Eve meal. 

Christmas is all about indulgence and having fun with the people you love most. So secure your tickets now for some Christmas Eve excitement.
