Are you a Grief Grinch? More Santa Cry than Santa Claus? Or does the Yuletide help you feel closer to the person you’ve lost? Either way, the festive season can be a mindfuck full of feelings for all of us in The Club – and that predicament often goes unacknowledged by your annoyingly merry coworkers, who’ve put All I Want For Christmas on heavy rotation in the office since the beginning of October... (sadly, a TGN true story). ☃️
So, to combat all those forced good tidings, we’re throwing a Shitmas Party – the only party where you can harp about your humbug, delight in your festive dread, and chat about what a shit show Crimbo can be, without fear of judgment, awkwardness, or feeling like you're the only one who’d rather slip into a deep sleep from now until January. 🎄💤
What can you expect at a Shitmas Party? Well first up, a crafty workshop from our good friend Poppy Paper Cuts aka @TheGriefcase; then, some Shitmas cheer from comedian and writer Jack Rooke; and finally, to get you dancing, artist and DJ Elizabeth Ilsley will be playing some tunes, with a NO CHRISTMAS SONGS policy firmly in place. And we may even have a couple more special guests to be announced 🥰🎵🍒
Can a grief Christmas party be fun? Come and find out! Join us in raising a glass to your lost ones, without a single screech of Slade coming through the speakers to send you into a teary hole of fest-fear.
Please note: this event will be BYONB (Bring Your Own Non-Bereaved – your mates outside The Club are welcome to come). 👯♀️👯♂️
Presented by TGN.
This is an 18+ event.
