Drive-in panto comes to Manchester this Christmas

The Parking Lot Social have teamed up with intu Trafford Centre to put together the UK’s biggest drive-in winter festival, starting from December 1.

Following a string of sold out events throughout the summer, they have created a spectacular line-up of festive events, including the first parking lot pantomime, a selection of classic and modern films, Christmas karaoke, and interactive quiz shows, all complete with a firework finale.

With many theatres closing throughout winter the uncertainty over the festivities has loomed, leaving many wondering if and how they can see their loved ones, but the Parking Lot Social is aiming to make Christmas look a lot better.

Chief Operating Officer at XL Event Labs, the company behind the events, John Kinnersley, said: “After the year we’ve had it really feels like everyone could do with a bit of festive cheer.”

The parking lot pantomime will showcase the classic Cinderella tale told through the eyes of nine professional actors, dancing and singing their way through the complexities of this year, in a light hearted approach.

Not to be missed is the 60ft rainbow coloured Christmas tree, giant DJ Santa and his MCs, and everyone’s favourite reindeer, Rudolph.

The events will be visible on two 40 ft screens, broadcast through wireless headphones, all from the comfort of your own car, maybe even parked next to friends and family for the ultimate experience.

Plenty of seasonal comforts like, gourmet burgers, loaded fries, hot chocolate, gingerbread men and more, will also be available from some well known local food trucks, which can be ordered by phone.

Mr Kinnersley added: “We know how to put on a drive-in party more than anyone else, and the line-up of events that we’ve got planned are giving us that warm Christmassy glow already.” 

Tickets for the Manchester event at the Intu Trafford Centre are now available online from theparkinglotsocial.co.uk/Christmas where guests will be able to display their tickets through their dashboards or have their tickets scanned remotely, in respect of the guidelines throughout the events.
