Ducie Street Warehouse will transform into a fairy tale land, known as Mancunia, as it presents The NQ Grotto – a series of immersive Christmas performances which will see Santa and his elves busy preparing for Christmas within the unique setting of the Warehouse’ towering atrium.

After proving such a huge hit last year, the grotto will return with four theatre performances across the month, with shows happening on the 4th, 11th, 18th and 19th of December.

Promising a Christmas event like no other, guests can take in a dance with the Ice Princess, a singalong with Mrs Claus, story time by the Snow Queen, fun time with Brother & Sister Elves, Holly & Ivy and of course, a chance to meet Santa himself.

Perfect for kids and big kids alike,  guests can grab comfortable floor cushions and sit together to immerse themselves in an exciting and energising Christmas wonderland.
