Let’s be honest, 2020 was a bit of a let down. The closest most of us got to live comedy was watching videos on Facebook and no, listening to a family members' painful lockdown attempt to learn a new instrument doesn’t count as live music.
But with a vaccine on the horizon, we’re keeping our fingers firmly crossed that live music, comedy, theatre and festivals will be back on the agenda next year.
So, if you’ve left it too late to order a physical gift in the post, printable tickets for these amazing tours and concerts will make thoughtful and optimistic gifts. Besides, we really all do need something to look forward to in 2021.

Jess Beech is an experienced fashion and beauty editor, with more than eight years experience in the publishing industry. She has written for woman&home, GoodtoKnow, Now, Woman, Woman’s Weekly, Woman’s Own and Chat, and is currently Deputy Fashion & Beauty Editor at Future PLC.
She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
