Festive events and activities this month

Christmas lights

Christmas is nearly upon us and there are plenty of events both at the University and in the city to get you into the festive spirit!

Here are our top picks:

Science in the Snug: Schrodinger’s Santa: The Anti-Turkey Accelerator and the Entangled Santa Particle (ESP)

6pm – 8pm / Friday 15 December 2023Victoria Gallery & Museum/ Free but registration is essential 

Over several years Professor Peter Myers has developed his theory to explain the existence of Santa and how he can deliver all the presents and eat and drink all the food that is left for him in the 24-hour period of Christmas Eve-Christmas Day.

Like all good theories this has changed from the original wave theory to a particle theory as new data has been collected and certain assumptions proven to be incorrect.

Join Professor Myers for an festive evening of Christmas theories, mulled wine and minced pies!

The Luna Winter Cinema 

From 14 December / Liverpool Town Hall

Get into the festive spirit by watching one of your favourite Christmas classics on the big screen! From December 14th Luna Cinema will be showing films such as Elf, Home Alone and Die Hard

Liverpool Christmas Markets

11am – 10pm, until 24 December / St George’s Plateau and William Brown Street

Liverpool’s Christmas markets return  this year with  festive food offerings, a carefully selected range of crafters and makers selling unique Christmas gifts, decorations, art, crafts and jewellery. There’s also a  range of bars including the tipi bar, ski bar, windmill bar and the Bavarian bar.

Royal Albert Dock Festive Light trail 

Until 22 December / Free 

The Royal Albert Dock is one of the city’s most impressive spots but at Christmas becomes truly magical! This festive period, why not take a wander through its festive light trail, complete with over 1 million lights.
