COMPETITION: 12 Days of Christmas

By now the Christmas festivities have (possibly) subsided, you’ve schmoozed with distant relatives, devoured the leftovers and watched re-runs of The Royle Family Christmas special – at least – four times. Well,¬†regardless of what was laying under the tree this year, over at MCR Live, we’re feeling generous! Think of us as Santa’s gal-about-town, music-loving, Manchester-dwelling elves. ūüéĀ

This year, we’ve gone all out with even bigger (and better?) prizes! We’ve collected the very best of the best treats from across Manchester and split them up into three separate competitions. Starting on the 26th December 2018, each competition is slightly different to the last, ticking each and every of those who keep an eye out and enter. Although we do apologise, each competition is¬†only open to those aged 18 and above. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, with delicacies to enjoy upon collection and tickets for events to look forward to, at a later date in 2019. Here’s what’s up for grabs in this year’s MCR Live 12 Days of Christmas competition:
