Merseyside Skeptics Christmas Party

Celebrate Christmas Skeptically -- by partying with your friends! Merseyside Skeptics are having their annual Christmas Party at the Tempest on Tithebarn Street in Liverpool.

There will be light bites so please register your attendance so we have an idea of numbers for the catering.


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, following the success of the last three year's Secret Santa, we've decided to run it again, so the rules are:

  1. If you want to get involved bring one wrapped gift, preferably a gag gift such as an old book you no longer want, a present you got last year and don't know what to do with or, if you're really stuck, a tin of sardines. Don't bring something fancy because chances are, you'll get something naff in return.
  2. Hand over your lovingly selected and beautifully wrapped gift over to Kat Ford, who will give you a raffle ticket in exchange.
  3. Towards the end of the night Kat will call out ticket numbers and hand you a gift. (She has a system to make sure you won't end up with your own gift, it doesn't involve tumble dryers or an infinite number of photocopiers, but it does work. Don't worry about it).
  4. Unwrap and enjoy your wonderful gift which you will undoubtedly treasure forever, or five minutes, or not at all. Whatever. It's the thought that counts.

Safety & Comfort

We aim to be an inclusive organisation, welcoming attendees from all backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders. The directors reserve the right to remove any attendee whose continued presence represents a real or perceived threat to the smooth running of our events, or the security and comfort of other attendees. Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
