Royal Albert Dock Floating Cinema: 27th November – 10th December
The successful Royal Albert Dock floating cinema is back for the holidays! This time (of course) it’s Christmas themed. Movie fans will be able to snuggle up under the blankets as they watch their favourite festive films.
You can enjoy Christmas classics such as Elf, Love Actually, Die Hard and The Holiday.

Don’t worry about getting hungry as the Dock restaurants will be offering a delicious array of festive front row treats, drinks and refreshments.
Michael Buble: 3 – 4th December
It really isn’t Christmas without Michael Buble is it? Spend “An Evening with Michael Buble” at the M&S Bank Arena, where he will be performing alongside his incredible 32-piece band.
This is a concert not to be missed, as Michael Buble is one of the best entertainers in the world. He is able to connect with his audience like no other performer by creating an intimate atmosphere with the audience, who he refers to as his family.
Michael will be taking stage across two nights at the area. Tickets are available online now. Our The Docks apartments at Royal Quay is on the doorstep of the venue, so why not take advantage and book your accommodation now.
Cinderella: 6th December – 5th January
Pantomimes are the epitome of a British Christmas and Cinderella is no exception. The Epstein Theatre, on Hanover St, will be performing the panto for a month long. The fairy-tale show promises to be a festive extravaganza with enchanted pumpkins, glass slippers, a sparkling fairy-tale carriage and a Fairy Godmother to make all your dreams come true.
Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward leads the cast in the title role of Cinderella, whilst Benidorm’s Crissy Rock and Brookside’s Sarah White double up as the Ugly Sisters.
Cinderella tells the story of a beautiful girl who is forced to be a servant by her two ugly stepsisters. That is all set to change when an invitation to a grand ball at the palace arrives.
