Each year, The Refuge put on a showstopping line-up of festive events, delicious grub plus plenty of other fun festivities.

And this year, despite everything, is no different!

The Christmas Carol will be kicking off at The Refuge on Wednesday, December 3rd, when and if the lockdown rules are lifted with a festive sing-a-long from The Sunday boys Choir, accompanied by musicians from Manchester String Quartet and a special Christmas Town Hall Crier.

Waterhouse Way will be transformed into an undercover heated snug to perfectly capture an Edwardian Christmas.

The outdoor courtyard will be waiting for a cosy winter drink, tucked away off the street under twinkling lights.

You’ll also be able to get your paws on a festive gourmet British hotdog slinger using handmade sausage.

Plus Cheddar Gorgeous will be treating everyone to festive stories and buskers will be singing festive songs.
