The festive season is well and truly upon us, and Manchester’s Albert Hall is getting us in the mood with a typically stellar start to December.

This week we’ve opted for two completely opposite ends of the spectrum with our live picks—iconic singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez and an extra special festive extravaganza of renowned international drag superstars.

Jose Gonzalez | 6 Dec | £28.60

Despite releasing just three studio albums in the last 18 years, few singer-songwriters can boast the same kind of worldwide reputation as the incredible Swedish musician, Jose Gonzales.

A fascinating and illustrious career makes his appearance in Manchester a must-see, particularly in the breathtaking and incredibly apt setting of the Albert Hall.



X-Mas X-Travaganza – Shantay You Sleigh | 14 Dec | £38.50

An international lineup of beloved stars from RuPaul’s Drag Race will take over the Albert Hall stage on 14 Dec, putting on a Christmas showcase of unapologetic, fierce festive cheer.

Hosted by The Vivienne and Baga Chipz, familiar faces from the UK, US and Canada will include the likes of Scarlett Harlett, Vanity Milan, Scarlett Envy, Latrice Royal, Priyanka and Olivia Lux.

For any superfans, a meet & greet ticket is also available for £110, which includes entry to the show.
