The Grotto idea seems to be in a state of disruption, alas. There ARE functioning grottae this year and a big heads up to the wonderful Wheelie Bin Sound System and their Santas Ghetto Grotto. Many of you are sadly homeless when it comes to grotto though. Never mind Santa. Just come along and look for people like you and invite yourself to join them, whether it be the Santas with blue in the beard, the Ukelele playing santae, Pirate Santas, Cyber Santas, Steampunk Santae, Punk Punk Santae, Santa’s fillies with Mrs Claus on a hen night Santae, Green Santa, Smart Chap Santa, the Reindeer boys, the lovely elfin folk (yes we love them now!) or whatever you fancy. Be original if you like. See if you can be the only santa in his class!
At the finale party at Bloomsbury Bowling lanes there will be a festive set and a professional photographer (and her able assistant) to take photos of you. If you would like to record a formally posed portait of yourself as Santa – this i the place to do it. If you want to get papped for posterity with the new Santa friends you made onthe day so that you remember who they are when you come round on Monday, this is the place to go. The photo studio will commence at 9 pm and end at 1 pm and photos will be £5 per shot (not per person). Please Santa try not to rah the booth and fall on the trees, and try not to molest the elf. Please, by all means though, encourage people to sit on your lap. This little corner of the Kingpin Suite will be our LAPland… HoHoHO…
Howdy Doody Santakin!
ARe you getting ready? bought the fun fur to trim up your outfit and insulate yourself against the cold? Got the big boots and the thermal socks ready? got some nice red underwear to strip down to if it gets a bit hot in the bars?
By Now you should have downloaded and read the Santacon Guide – yes? Then you won’t have any questions!
So just a reminder that it is on the 11th – it starts in UNDER 2 WEEKS! Are you excited yet?
Tickets for our usual Early bird Cinema Start and Grande Finale Party are now on sale . The lovely folk at the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square have got us a BRAND NEW film this year – “Rare Exports” which is just about to be released – what a scoop! DO book in advance as the rest of the world who have not seen it yet might book santas tickets, and we know that really we just want a cinema full of SANTAE!
The culmination of the day is a right Xmas Banger! We are going to go to Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes (there are lanes reserved for Santa on a first come first served basis on the night).The Bustin” Loose boys have got us a handsome package of Live Bands, performance and neat beats to see us through to 3 a.m. The Bowling Lances is a fabulous venue – retro kitsch, over many levels, karaoke rooms, cinema and a bar with better beers than most. There are football tables a 50′s diner and it is home to the largest pizza in London – a 26″er. Santa might need some friends to share it. That of course will not be a problem as at Santacon you know everyone’s name – SAANTAAA!
Book your tix now my Red Brethren, it’s going to be a big red throbbing double hander of a party – and advance tickets are only 5 pounds. Yes, at that price they ARE going fast…
Gotta Dash -
Love and Peace to all the family xx
