Christmas at Liverpool Philharmonic

Christmas at Liverpool Philharmonic

Liverpool Philharmonic is throwing the biggest Christmas party in town… and you’re invited! We’ve lined up the merriest music, fabulously festive films and sparkling seasonal songs, so gather up the whole family and join us as we celebrate the most magical time of the year.


First up, we’re dreaming of a green Christmas, as we join Kermit and friends for a classic seasonal tale in The Muppet Christmas Carol. Then we step into a world of enchanting festive magic as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra perform music from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, before we head to 1950s New York for a Swingin’ Christmas – a glittering evening of Big Band seasonal favourites starring phenomenal vocalist, Kerry Ellis.

Old Saint Nick himself drops in for our full family celebration, Singalong with Santa, before we host our annual festive extravaganza, Spirit of Christmas, featuring our Artist in Residence Pacho Flores and new host, Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason.

Sticking to tradition, we’ll bring you Christmas Eve showings of the classic It’s A Wonderful Life. We also present the timeless magic of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, accompanied live on stage by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

New Year’s Eve promises to be a real hit, as we welcome 2023 in style with an evening of Motown Classics. Finally, beat the January blues by joining us for our annual performance of Handel’s rousing Messiah.
