A fairy tale grotto experience is coming to Manchester’s Northern Quarter this Christmas, bringing dancing ice princesses and the Snow Queen herself into the heart of the city.
Taking place across four dates in December, Native Manchester and Ducie Street Warehouse will transform into the fantasy land known as ‘Mancunia’ as it presents its popular NQ Grotto experience for the second year.
Featuring an immersive Christmas performance from Santa and his elves, alongside some of their closest friends, the magical grotto experience will take over the towering heights of the Atrium at Native Manchester for four special days.
Guests can expect to enjoy a beautiful Grotto theatre performance, with a magical journey unlike no other awaiting families this Christmas at the NQ venues.
The 60-minute experience will be completely family-friendly and feature dances with the Ice Princess, a singalong with Mrs Claus, storytime with the Snow Queen, and silly time with the brother and sister elves Holly and Ivy.
Children will also get to meet the big man, Santa Claus himself, and tell him all the things that are on their Christmas list this year. Who knows, he might even have a little surprise in store for them.
Alongside the Grotto experience, there will also be food stalls in the atrium available with festive food and drink offerings from Ducie Street Warehouse.
Perfect for little and big kids alike, the family-friendly event is set within the trendy, warehouse-chic surroundings of the Grade II listed Ducie Street building, where guests can grab comfortable floor cushions and sit together to immerse themselves in an exciting Christmas wonderland.
The NQ Grotto will return to the Northern Quarter at Native Manchester across four dates in December – 4, 11, 18, and 19.
Tickets are available to book now, with each day offering a 60-minute session each at 10 am, 11.45 am, 1.30 pm, 3.14 pm and 5 pm.
