6 fantastic festive events happening at Unity Theatre this Christmas

So here are six dates to get in your diary and get down to Hope Place for during December …

Unity Night Market – Saturday December 3

The Christmas Night Market is back by popular demand, it’s even bigger than before and it’s still free! Unity is transforming into a Winter Wonderland for one night only, bringing together local artists, businesses, creatives, musicians and chefs so you can get pick up great original gifts and have a fun night while you’re at it.  There’ll be makers selling prints, clothes, homeware, food, drink, jewellery, spirits, skincare and more, plus live music and DJs, food stalls and drinks from local brands including Love Lane, 92 Degrees, Neptune and Big Bog Gin.

Creatives Christmas Party – Thursday December 8

Unity Theatre

Liverpool is absolutely packed with creative talent and this is their chance to come together at Christmas and celebrate. Everyone who works in the creative or cultural industries in the city – either with an organisation or freelance – is welcome to come along, raise a glass with a mulled drink and enjoy a night of live music. Unity is committed to supporting Liverpool’s creative community so the party’s free, although guests are asked to bring along a foodbank donation if they can.

Christmas Quiz – Thursday December 15

Unity Theatre

Who doesn’t love a bit of quizzing at Christmas, especially when there’s prizes up for grabs? As part of the Creative ‘Pool events, two groups – queer creatives and producers – will be getting together for a joint pre-Christmas social and to put their knowledge to the test. Teams can have up to six players and there’ll be prizes for each round rather than an overall one which means more chances to win. On from 6pm, free for Creative ‘Pool members.

Get the whole family in the Christmas mood with this all-singing, all-dancing, full-of-laughs festive treat of a show.
