Santacon doesn’t end outdoors, Santa…

The venue is a proper club with bouncers on the door who search bags, so Santa will not be let in if he’s got drugs or alcohol in his sack or has had one too many sherries.

And there’s ten pin bowling

Not surprisingly, you can actually do some bowling at Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes, Santa, however you do have to book the lanes separately. A group of six Santae can book a lane for an hour for £50. Two lanes costs £105 for an hour.
