Review of ChristmasCity - The Polar Express (1pm)

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

I have never attended a Drive Through event before but wanted to take my 16yr old daughter out somewhere for Christmas as nothing else was open. We arrived well on time, the event was very well organised and we were entertained with music while we waited to enter the event. Inside there were entertainers and dressed up elves etc walking through the cars for the small children. I have to admit I was sceptical at first but we both thoroughly enjoyed this, it was so enjoyable we will be doing it again next year and taking other family members with us. An excellent afternoon out in such dire times but was well worth the effort in attending and was such good fun as well - all in the comfort of your own car !!

EventCity venue information

Located next to The Trafford Centre in Manchester, EventCity is a vast single building situated on a privately-owned 24-acre site, surrounded by free parking and with immediate access to major motorway networks.

EventCity launched as ‘the exhibition space' in March 2011, and has since hosted a portfolio of prestigious consumer & trade shows plus high profile entertainment events including The X Factor Manchester auditions, the Commonweath Heavyweight Boxing Title, the Powersnooker Masters Trophy and 'The Greatest Party on Earth' (the premiere Christmas party nights in the North West attracting over 10,000 festive revellers).

Now recognised as a key venue in the North West, Event City has an exciting calendar of events lined up in 2012 that include general interest exhibitions, specialist hobby shows, trade fairs and entertainment events.

The building was constructed in the late 1990’s, and has been used for a variety of commercial purposes over the last fifteen years. In 2010 the building was known as the ‘Museum of Museums’ a heritage and ‘edutainment’ venue, then launched as an official public events & exhibition centre, EventCity, in March 2011.
