Key 103 to get bigger balls
Key 103 is moving its annual music concert to a different venue, meaning for the first time, its Jingle Ball will be held at the Manchester Evening News Arena.
The festive event previously took place at Lancashire County Cricket Club, which is this year going through re-development.
Key 103’s Station Director Gary Stein said: "I am delighted the Jingle Ball is getting even bigger this year and moving to the M.E.N Arena. Over the past four years the event has attracted some of pop’s biggest names including The Script, The Saturdays and Scouting for Girls and this year we have an incredible line up of chart acts who will be performing."
A spokesperson for the M.E.N Arena said: "We're delighted to be hosting Key 103 Jingle Ball Live on 1st December. Being held at the M.E.N Arena for the first time in its history means even more listeners can now celebrate Manchester's biggest party this Christmas."
The Manchester Evening News Arena has a maximum capacity of 23,000, compared with the previous venue which had a capacity of 50,000.
