The 12 Pubs Of Christmas Crawl

“The 12 Pubs Of Christmas” started in Ireland 10 years ago, but now it’s taken over the UK! The idea is simple: wear the most garish Christmas jumper or festive outfit you can find, join a large group of people then try to drink in 12 pubs in one day. So join Citysocializer as we get December off to a banging start with our super hosts on hand to guide our group around 12 central London drinkeries for the festive challenge!
