Wrap up, it’s getting to be chilly out there, aka the season for drinking anything with the word ‘hot’ in it … hot chocolate, gin, mulled wine…now’s definitely their time.

Grab yourself one while you’re out doing the Christmas shopping (top tip, PINS Alpine Village hot gin is amazing) and make the most of the weekend with one of these 12 things to do…

Bombed Out Church Festive Bar launches

It kept the pizza and drinks coming outdoors over summer and now the Bombed Out Church has had a Christmas makeover with a festive garden bar under its heated marquee, open at weekends from 1pm to 10.30pm, and festive magical woodland themed chancel within the church grounds. Donations on the door, and you can book online for the bar.
