If you’re tired of traipsing around the bustling Christmas markets, get yourself in to the festive spirit the traditional way: at Manchester Cathedral’s annual carol concert. Bring along family and friends for choir performances and candlelit renditions of your favourite carols in the breathtaking surroundings of one of the city’s most famous medieval buildings. Directed by Jeffrey Mackinson, highlights include entertainment from the Manchester Cathedral Voluntary Choir and the Phoenix Brass Quintet. Proceeds go to the NSPCC to support vulnerable children across the UK, so you can enjoy a magical evening and for a good cause too (t’is the season of goodwill, after all). It may even inspire you to brave the markets again for a post-choral drink and mince pie. Book your tickets now before they’re all snapped up.

Mon 17 Dec, Manchester Cathedral, Exchange Station Approach, Victoria Street, M3 1SQ, Tel: 0844 892 0253, 7pm, £10 adults, £7 concessions, www.nspcc.org.uk/get-involved
