There’s something to bring everyone to Bury this December, with a Christmas programme at The Met packed with music, laughter, and a little festive magic.
Our family show The Big Snowy Christmas from December 20 is a magical winter treat for ages 3 and over. This story of a baby bear who helps Santa on Christmas eve is sure to be a hit, coming from the people behind last year’s hugely successful Lily and the Christmas Snow Bear.
There’s folk with a festive flavour on December 8 from long-time Met favourites The Albion Christmas Band; while December 19 sees St Agnes Fountain return with their popular mix of “rhythmed-up” carols and Christmas music. Or if you prefer something a little more contemporary, why not try Fara’s Christmas Tour; the BBC folk-award nominated four-piece bring us Christmas cheer from the Orkneys on December 14.
Dickens’ Christmas Carol collides with folk-dance and hip-hop on December 12 when The Demon Barbers power into Bury with The Lock in “Christmas Carol”. Don’t miss this extraordinary half-dance, half-panto tale of pub regulars fighting the miserly plans of landlady Jasmineezer Scrooge…
