Santa Santa SANTA!
We are now facing an armageddonesque December 2012, the year of our Disco-tent. The world as we know it is set to end shortly after 15 December, so the best thing we can do is go out with a BIG PARTY!
If annihilation comes as bad news, fear not, there is good news too. This year’s afterparty will not be in a tent. Santa was only joking. Instead, it will once again be at our favourite Bloomsbury Grotto on Bedford Way, and we expect tickets to go on sale as soon as the elves get back from gathering mushrooms and taking the piss out of the reindeer.
WONDERS WILL NEVER CEASE! Well actually they will, quite possibly on the 21 December when the Sun gets switched off. But until then we have the afterparty, and we’ve roped in something big, loud and brassy that had the crowds at the Olympic village cheering and singing, as well as a famous name (not as famous as Bluebeard Santa, obvisously) to groove us with xmas funk.
For Santas looking for hotels and reindeer parking spaces, the Bloomsbury Grotto is underneath the Tavistock Hotel WC1, with the actual bunker–sorry GROTTO–entrance a short way down on Bedford Way.
But pay heed young Santae, tickets this year will be sold IN ADVANCE ONLY, so stand by with your bit of plastic for the announcement. Not all santas will be saved–sorry I meant be able to get in. There is only space for 144,000 chosen Santae in the Grotto, so rally your fellow bearded ones and stand by to get tickets, or else you’ll be wailing and gnashing your teeth with the goddamned elves.
