The festive season at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is almost upon us and there will be magical concerts and fabulous films.
Watching a film at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is a special experience – the screenings are shown on an original 1930s cinema screen which rises out of the stage – and there are a whole host of festive favourites coming this December.
You can dream of a green Christmas with The Muppet Christmas Carol on Saturday 3 December, then next up is 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. The timeless magic of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial on Friday 30 December will be accompanied live on stage by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
There are plenty of other Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Christmas treats in store for audiences this year. 1950s New York is the location 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 Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. Liverpool Philharmonic Children’s Choirs will join the Orchestra for Singalong with Santa, the magical family concerts on Saturday 17 December and Sunday 18 December.
The 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 2023 is welcomed in style with an evening of Motown Classics. Finally, beat the January blues with the annual performance of Handel’s rousing Messiah on Saturday 7 January.
