Spirit of Christmas

Friday 23th December

For Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason, Christmas is a “glorious hurly-burly”. It’s a time for family, so who better to host our annual celebration than the inspirational super-mum at the heart of Britain’s most musical family?


There’ll be classic carols, audience singalongs, seasonal readings, magical surprises and a special Christmas gift from our Artist in Residence – the sensational Pacho Flores. So join Kadiatu, Pacho, the Orchestra and our choirs for Liverpool’s great musical festive tradition. It wouldn’t be Christmas without it!

‘This was another faultless celebration of Christmas with old and new carols and classics. There was something for everyone.’
Wirral Globe, 5* review of Spirit of Christmas (December 2021)

The performance on 22 December will be signed by BSL interpreter, Kate Labno.
