National Christmas Jumper Day in the UK falls on 8th December December and invites all Leicester Shootfighters members and jiu jitsu friends to drop in for an open mat training session and group photo wearing their Christmas jumpers.
Tom Taylor - Rather a peculiar looking being. Instantly laughable. Annoyingly clever jokes and some rather silly ones. 'Immediately very funny, the best jumper in comedy and really really well written jokes' Isy Suttie is coming for a Christmas Comedy Special.
Family Christmas Party: A good old fashioned family knees up. Expect cheesy party songs and kids sliding on their knees while the parents enjoy a chat and a drink/tea. There will be affordable food on sale to help raise funds and maybe a raffle, it's all for a good cause.
The Last Christmas Market will be running in The Western’s Cafe & garden. This will be your last chance to grab those gifts from 15 local artists, makers and crafters. It's free entry and will also be offering free craft sessions throughout the day, a festive singalong with Hannah Platts, mulled wine and more!
The local Fire Station Santa and Rudolph will be visiting Thurcaston Park starting at Croft Road and going around the route of the main roads. Ending at Taverners Road with Festive Carols & Christmas singing.
