Ho Ho Hope and Social

A glorified pub crawl. With a Big Band. 2011.

Four pubs, one school, two busses, one town hall with 23 steps, 720 pints of Ho-Ho Hope and Social, 160 revellers, 6 band members, three trumpets, four saxophones, three trombones, one christmas tree, hundreds of pom-poms, secret santa pressents, a band of merry helpers and one amazing day!

The Snowball was our 2011 Christmas party; a glorified pub crawl with our own ale courtesy of Leeds Brewery and our own Big Band courtesy of James Hamilton! We let it swing with the Hope and Social Big Band bashing out Sinatra style H&S tunes and we welcomed Christmas with Leeds’ biggest Secret Santa.

We even had our own handmade Christmas decorations made by the wonderful Malcolm and Rhona Cruikshank. Buy them here.
