We’re not able to invite you to celebrate the Christmas season here with us at The Met this year, so instead we’d like to bring festive entertainment to you, online and by post!

By post we’re bringing you The Seashell Stew, a Christmas show you can stage in your own home. It’s like a cross between craft making fun and a radio play! Buy a ticket and we’ll send you a box containing everything you’ll need. But be sure to get in before midnight on December 17 to catch the last mail before Christmas.

Online we have two virtual Christmas gigs for you. On December 10 we’re bringing you Chris While and Julie Matthews’ Virtual Christmas, while on Christmas Eve we present McGoldrick, McCusker and Doyle’s Christmas at Home. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy these fantastic festive folk gigs performed by some of our favourite artists.

Finally we’ve announced a pair of extra gifts for you to put under that tree in the run up to the big day. A Very Bury Christmas is a wonderful free showcase of Bury’s continuing creativity this year. Tune in on Sunday 20 December from 7pm for festive treats from local choirs, musicians and performers (with a couple of highlights from the year and surprise guests). It’s hosted by actor Graeme Hawley and poet and friend of The Met Tony Walsh.

For everyone we’d have loved to welcome to The Met for a family show this December, we’re happy to be able to share Little Darling. A festive show inspired by the world of Peter Pan, it’s available to stream free of charge for just 48 hours from the afternoon of 22 December.
