This year, theatregoers in Manchester are completely spoilt for choice as there are loads of great productions all vying for your Christmas pounds. From the best panto in town - Aladdin at the Opera House through to the festive hit White Christmas.

But how do you decide what to see, and who to take? Based on our star ratings alone - Grimm's Tales comes out on top with 5/5. But have a look at all of our reviews below before you set off:

White Christmas The Lowry

If you are still none the wiser and cannot decide, you could go and see Nine at the cinema instead.

Happy Christmas one and all!
