If you’ve left it too late to order flowers for Mother’s Day on Sunday 14 March, ditch the petrol station bouquet and give the gift of entertainment instead.

We know Mother’s Day can be a difficult time for some people, but if there’s another meaningful figure in your life you’d like to show some love to on Sunday, here are our top five picks:

Madison Violet

Part of our Artists from Anywhere Series, we’re bringing exclusive and rare lockdown sets from some of our favourite folk and Americana artists. As well as a 60 minute set, you’ll also be treated to a Q&A with the artists by our Artistic Director, David Agnew. This is a must for Mums who like listening to music and asking a lot of questions.
Thursday 18 March, 7.30pm. £8, book now.

Chateau Ghoul, Lip Service

Bringing their own brand of comedic energy to Zoom are Lip Service with their new show, Château Ghoul, on 31 March and 1 April.

Château Ghoul is East Yorkshire’s go-to boutique hotel offering themed weekends, although the high death rate keeps them from ever achieving that elusive Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.

An interactive comedy show with integrated BSL, captioning and an Audio Description option.

Hannah White

We’re so excited to welcome Hannah White as one of the first post-lockdown performers back into the building, and we’re sure Mum will enjoy a night out, too.

Influenced by country, blues, folk and soul, Hannah has her own unique sound. Performing with her husband/guitarist Kieron and featuring special guest Robbie Cavanagh, book a table to enjoy live music in a Covid-secure venue. Saturday 29 May, 8.30pm. Tables from £27, individual tickets from £13.50.

Desperado (Eagles Tribute)

If your Mum ever told you to stop treating her house like a Hotel (California), then this is the show for her. From their first beginnings to their final album, Desperado take you on a two hour journey of all your favourite Eagles songs. Take It Easy and book a book a table to enjoy live music in a Covid-secure venue. Saturday 5 June, 7.30pm. £17.50.

Gift Vouchers

Ok, so we know that this isn’t the most personalised of gifts, for Mother’s Day, but it sure beats a hastily bought item from Aldi’s mystery aisle. Valid for 24 months after purchase, our vouchers can be customised and you can spend as much or as little as you like.

We’re proud to have kept culture at the heart of our communities over the last 12 months, and every ticket you buy directly supports our artists, audiences, workshop groups, as well as our work to give people across Greater Manchester fairer access to culture. Now, isn’t that better than giving it to Jeff Bezos?
