Everything happening at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall this Christmas
11 months ago
The festive season at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is the most wonderful time of the year.
As ever, it will be celebrating Christmas with magical concerts and fabulous films – and the team can’t wait to welcome you!
Watching a film at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is a special experience. Its screenings are shown on an original 1930s cinema screen which rises out of the stage – and it has a whole host of festive favourites coming this December. It will be dreaming of a green Christmas with The Muppet Christmas Carol on Saturday 3 December, then it is showing the Judy Garland Christmas classic, Meet Me in St. Louis, on Sunday 18 December. On Christmas Eve, there will be a screening of the enduring classic It’s a Wonderful Life.
It will then also present the timeless magic of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial on Friday 30 December, accompanied live on stage by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
There are plenty of other Christmas treats in store for audiences this year. It is bringing you to 1950s New York on Saturday 10 December for a Swingin’ Christmas – two concerts of Big Band seasonal favourites, starring phenomenal vocalists, Kerry Ellis and Matt Ford.
Then, Santa Claus himself is throwing a party at the venue! Liverpool Philharmonic Children’s Choirs will join the Orchestra for Singalong with Santa as part of magical family concerts on Saturday 17 December and Sunday 18 December.
Its much-loved annual Spirit of Christmas concerts, featuring the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Choir, will be presented by new host Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason. They’ll feature something for everyone – Christmas carols, audience singalongs, and Liverpool Philharmonic’s Artist in Residence, the sensational trumpeter Pacho Flores, will join the celebration!
New Year’s Eve promises to be a real hit, as it welcomes 2023 in style with an evening of Motown Classics. Finally, beat the January blues by attending the annual performance of Handel’s rousing Messiah on Saturday 7 January.
