A Merry Christmas and best of the season to you, dear partygoers!

Last year, friend of the show (and occasional unwitting musical contributor), David M. dropped by the rumpus room to play a selection of his favourite Christmas songs. Well, Covid put paid to any ideas in that direction so it fell to David, our resident Grinch, to pull together a Christmas mix of his own…

So, once again, please join us in the Yuletide rumpus room. We’ve trimmed the tree with bingle balls, who-floo fluff, and bizel blicks! Amidst the woo hoo boo bricks, dangling pantukas and that pile of panpunas by the beanbag chair, we’ve got a great selection of seasonal sides to make this holiday season go down easy!

So nog that egg and enjoy some holiday cheer!
