Emirates Old Trafford’s flag-ship shared party night, the ‘Christmas Extravaganza’, will take place in ‘The Point’ on Saturday 1, Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Friday 14 December. Guests can expect to find a 90-minute set from seven-piece band, ‘Under the Covers’, and a DJ until the early hours – as well as all the usual sparkly extras!

For the biggest night of the year, and to enjoy ‘Girls That Mix’, you need to get your hands on tickets to the ‘Works Finished for Christmas’ party! Grab your mates and head to ‘The Point’ on Friday 21 December, for what’s set to be the biggest night of the calendar. There’s even a graffiti wall and adult face painting!  

A more intimate evening takes place on Saturday 15 December.

Begin the evening with a glass of fresh fizz on arrival, before indulging in a deliciously festive three-course meal. The party then begins with entertainment from the smooth tones of UTC’s vocalist, Dan Martin.
