Every year we try to listen to what people want to do and come up with something. This year's brief was more tricky - we were asked for somewhere we could all hang around drinking and chatting, a bit of music for the old 'Handbag Shuffle', a chance to dress up a bit but most of all, keep it cheap. So what are we going to do? Easy, we're partying at the Cripps!
It's the DIVE Northampton Vicars & Tarts Christmas Party.
So what's the plan? We've got a buffet, including vegetarian and dessert options so that no-one gets hungry. There will be music to take us towards the witching hour. For those that like to dress up, the Theme is Vicars & Tarts so the guys can all follow Stuff's example and get shopping online for their costume and high heels. We've also organised some festive Real Ale to help get things going.
Anyway, the details: This year we are using the Stanley Hill Room at the Cripps. The party is on Friday 12th December and kick-off is 7:30pm. You all know where the Cripps is so finding it should be easy, there is a car park for those that will be driving and we are close enough to the centre of town that those with the stamina can head off into town afterwards. As usual, we will have a Raffle to raise money for the RNLI. If anyone has a Raffle Prize they’d like to contribute, feel free!
Tickets will be available from the shop and we’ve aimed to keep things nice and cheap this year and we’re only charging £10 for the evening. We are limited to 80 or so in the room so please don’t delay if you want to be sure of your spot!
I really hope as many of you as possible will want to come along – these events are always great fun and there are usually some interesting stories floating around afterwards.
Yo Ho Ho and all that.
