Event Details

Handel’s Messiah

Start your festivities with this most beloved of masterpieces, Handel’s Messiah, live at the Monastery, Manchester from 3pm on 1st December, 2024.

Always a sell-out, we are back with another performance of Handel’s Messiah by candlelight in the epic setting of the Great Nave of The Monastery. Performed in the round, the choir and orchestra will switch perspectives to allow you a 360 experience.

Dating back to 1742 the power and beauty of Handel’s rousing ‘Hallelujah’ chorus and ‘For unto us a child is born’ will engulf the incredible natural acoustics of The Great Nave. The performance will transport us back in time away from modern distractions to allow for a moment of stillness, rejuvenation and joy before the holiday period.

Ticket link coming soon.
