Christmas Party – book now, please!

Three Christmas Party Pirates from our party 2021….. theme of “Christmas, Posh, or Panto” this year 2022!

HEDON VIEWFINDERS CHRISTMAS PARTIES have become legendary… perhaps that’s an overstatement, but we do have fun!

With a three-course Christmas Meal, a Quiz, the occasional surprise award of an Eddie or two, and other Christmas surprises – and members dressing this year to the theme of “Christmas, Posh, or Panto” – then there’s even the odd occasion to take a photo or two!

The Eddie - award with wine
Eddie often surprises someone during the night!
