The Christmas hols are approaching and here at the 4th studio we’re getting into the festive spirit. We’ve put together our top 5 places to visit in Manchester. Keep scrolling to find out our top 5 seasonal things to do around our favourite city this fall.

The German Christmas Markets

It’s a classic. Based in the heart of the city, kick start the festive season at the Manchester Christmas Markets. Day or night explore the super cute gift stalls, endless food and drink chalets and start your holiday season the right way. We particularly love visiting the Oast House for live music and a few cheeky mulled wines.

The Grinch Musical @ The Lowry Theatre
Who doesn’t love The Grinch? And even better The Grinch in a musical? A must see, take your friends & family to really get you in the Christmas spirit! Visit The Lowry Theatre for date night and switch up your movie night for a seasonal special.
Ice Skating @ Media City
Not Feeling festive quite yet? Nothing gets you more into the Christmas mood than ice skating and hot chocolate. Get yourself down to Media City and put some skates on, you’ll be surprised how much of a laugh it is!
The Grinch Christmas Markets @ The Lowry
Looking for some crafty, unique Christmas gift ideas? The Lowry Christmas markets (The Grinch theme may I add) is the perfect place to find one off, unique gifts made by small independent businesses. We definitely recommend grabbing a hot drink and having a stroll around these markets.
Drinks With The Girls  @ Snow Globes, 20 Stories
Nothing beats the festive season for going out with your best girls and having a good old catch up! Head to 20 Stories and book out one of their insta-ready snow globes for the best views of the city. Its the perfect place for Christmas catch ups and chilling with a festive cocktail or two!
