Bringing a taste of home (without the air fare or quarantine) to London this December, two of Australia’s finest craft exports have partnered to host a one-night-only Antipodean Christmas extravaganza, for expats facing another winter in London.
Australia’s most awarded gin distillery, Four Pillars, and Freemantle-based brewery Little Creatures Brewingwill be taking the colloquially loved concept of an ‘Orphan’s Christmas’ to the next level with a community-centred celebration involving cocktails, comedy, and Christmas dishes.
Taking place on Wednesday 22nd December at Little Creatures Brewing Regent’s Canal brewery, guests can expect a star-studded comedy line-up featuring Aussie and UK TV sensation Felicity Ward, alongside professional flaneur and raconteur Marcel Lucont and award-winning comedy writer Bec Hill. Quizzes, surprises and an after show of Aussie anthems will make for the ultimate home-away-from-home experience, where no one will feel alone.
And with no Christmas party complete without the finest festive foods, who other than Queen’s Park favourite Milk Beach Restaurant & Bar to create a high-quality modern Australian menu including Seafood Linguine, Roast Romanesque and Aussie BBQ Chicken.
Taking care of drinks, the guys from Yarra Valley based distillery Four Pillars, will be bringing two signature cocktails – the Tom Collins and Bloody Spritz – as well as their award-winning G&Ts to the party, whilst Australia’s craft beer pioneer Little Creatures Brewing will be pouring its vibrant hoppy Pale Ale.
Tickets cost just £30 and include Christmas dinner buffet, 2 x drinks, and an evening of laughs, silliness, and memories that will last long into 2022.
Throughout December, Little Creatures Brewing will also be extending the celebrations by offering a free pint to London’s antipodean community. Simply show your Australian or New Zealand passport at participating bars to receive a pint of Little Creatures Pale Ale on the brewery.
