Make sure you don’t miss out on this magical evening

Supporters of Henshaws and anyone who wants to get into the festive spirit can join in the carol concert at Manchester Cathedral. The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 for adults and £6 for concessions if you pre-book. Tickets can also be bought on the day at £12 for adults and £8 for concessions – unless it sells out. Guides and carers go free.

Last Year's Event 

It’s an opportunity to catch local talent with performances from the Sale Salvation Army Brass Band. Guests will also be treated to a speech from Henshaws Ambassador and gold medal-winning Paralympian, Hannah Russell, on her experience of Rio 2016.Blind opera singer, Denise Leigh, who sang at the Paralympics 2012 opening ceremony, will be performing on the evening, accompanied by classical musician and director, Stefan Andrusyschyn.

Guests will be able to tuck in to some tasty treats at the interval and all proceeds will go to Henshaws to fund its on-going support of those with sight loss.

Last year’s event saw 800 people attend the concert for a completely sold out event so it is recommended that you book in advance to make sure you don’t miss out on this magical evening.
