The Liverpool events and attractions you can book tickets for right now

If the world’s a stage – then the curtain has just gone up on ours again.

Things are getting back to normal with the news that the Liverpool City Region is in Tier 2 putting the spotlight back on a host of fab productions, events and attractions that can now take place.

Christmas is about to become more magical, and here’s some of the things you can now book and enjoy for a fantastic festive season…

A Christmas Carol at Liverpool Playhouse


Saturday, December 5 to Thursday, December 24

Patrick Barlow’s take on the Charles Dickens Classic will certainly out you in the festive spirit, as Ebenezer Scrooge has a Christmas Eve to remember when his past, present and future are brought before his eyes to encourage a whole new look on life. Directed by Gemma Bodinetz, it’s guaranteed to ‘warm hearts, conjure smiles, and remind us all that shared joy can raise the lowest of spirits – even in the most extraordinary times’.

Book your tickets.

The Everyman: An Evening with Everyman & Friends and The Everyman Christmas Cabaret

This Christmas, the Everyman will be transformed into a lively cabaret space for two weeks of performance, songs and merriment, featuring local organisations and artists.

From December 10-12 Everyman & Friends celebrates independent arts organisations from across Liverpool, and the diversity of theatre in our city with performances from Everyman spoken word regulars A Lovely Word, the return of burlesque show DisabiliTease hosted by Little Peaches and Arielle Firecracker, music from Sense of Sound and clowns from the Ugly Bucket Theatre Company.

And, in the week before Christmas, December 17-24, musical director George Francis curates an evening of songs and performance in The Everyman Christmas Cabaret, taking audiences on a music theatre journey from Hope Street to an underground cabaret bar at the heart of New York.

Expect songs from the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel, Shaina Taub, Joni Mitchell and some Christmas classics to put you in the festive mood.

Panto is back – oh no it isn’t? Thankfully, yes it is – and it’s a classic at the fab St Helens theatre with the timeless story of Belle, a beautiful young woman who falls in love with the prince who’s been cursed to look like a hideous beast.

Starring Jamie Greer as Potty Polly; Abigail Middleton as Madame Botox; Scott Gallagher as French Frank; Olivia Sloyan as Belle; Andrew Geater as The Beast; Tim Lucas as Gaston, and Jenna Sian O’Hara as Fairy Rose, it’s going to be a Christmas cracker!
