2022: It’s Showtime

The Christmas festivities may be over, but that doesn’t mean the fun ends here. In fact, it’s only just beginning. What better way to ensure winter blues don’t get you down than sitting back, relaxing and getting lost in an all-star performance.

With the likes of The Royal Exchange Theatre, The Lowry, Home, Palace Theatre and Opera House all within easy access of The Ainscow Hotel, there’s something for everyone!

In need of some inspiration? We’ve rounded up a few we’re looking forward to this January (and early February)…
