This year we have a "Christmas Around the World" theme. There will be a glass of Prosecco, Gluhwein or none alcoholic something on arrival, followed by tea and some savouries and cakes . There will be crackers, quizzes, a fun game and a little sing song at the end. The aim is for a little light-hearted fun but you may also learn a thing or two about how other countries celebrate Christmas.
