This Christmas, we are delighted to invite you back to Manchester Cathedral to join our Christmas Carols in the City event, in support of our family of NHS Manchester hospitals.

Join us to celebrate the festive season in style, in the beautiful surroundings of the Cathedral, with an evening of Christmas carols and performances from local choirs including Manchester Grammar School, Manchester High School for Girls and The Hammond School of Music. The evening will also feature readings from our celebrity patrons.  The event is family friendly and suitable for all ages and the ticket price includes refreshments

Tickets cost £12 per adult, £6 for children and concessions or £32 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children)

The event is kindly sponsored by PG Tips and all money raised at Carols in the City will be match funded by Peninsula Group.

We are delighted to offer an exclusive discount for staff from across our family of hospitals when purchasing standard adult tickets.  The discounted price of £10 per ticket is available on production of a staff ID badge or assignment number and is limited to four tickets at the discounted price per staff member.
