Santacon coming to Edinburgh December 10th

SANTA WANTS YOU! (For Reindeer Games)

UPDATE December 1st the countdown to Santacon and pub crawl route

Hello Santa’s

The countdown has started for Santacon to descend on Edinburgh December 10th and we are looking for fun jolly Santa’s to join in all the reindeer games. So get your red suit ready and join us for an evening of shenanigans, songs, drinking and games.

We will meet at the Scottish National Gallery, Princess Street for 3:00 pm in the afternoon from there we can stroll through the German Market and warm up by singing some Santa Songs and grabbing a hot toddy. We will head towards the Scott’s Monument and perhaps take a spin around the big wheel.

What is Santacon…?

SantaCon is a not-for-profit, non-political, non-religious & non-logical Santa Claus convention, attended for absolutely no reason.

Get your red suit on and meet up with all the other Santas/Mrs Clause/Elves/ Reindeer and the occasional Grinch for a night, of drinks, laughs, singing and HO HO HOs.

Please Note if the weather is really bad we will start the pub-crawl early. Check back for any updates.
