Christmas Shows In Liverpool

You can always rely on fantastic festive entertainment in Liverpool when the Christmas season gets underway. For Christmas 2022, the Liverpool Empire hosted the heart-warming, toe-tapping festive musical White Christmas, whilst theatregoers who could hold on to their festive cheer until February were rewarded with a very special panto: Mother Goose, starring Ian McKellen and John Bishop. Pantomimes for Christmas 2023-2024 are to be confirmed.

Liverpudlians and visitors from across Merseyside have come together to enjoy Christmas shows since the Victorian era, and the Empire Theatre even opened with a pantomime in 1896 - Cinderella. The venue has welcomed many a star onto its stage during panto season since, including Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black and Ken Dodd.
