BOOK EARLY! Philosophy Football's Christmas 'Hopemas' party

I know, it seems crazy asking you to book up for a Christmas party when October isn't even over but our Christmas party always sell out and with the line up we have for this year's, Friday 17 Dec will be no exception. So do book early to ensure the best seats!  

Why Hopemas?  The brilliant Hope not Hate campaign in Barking and Dagenham which helped secure the defeat of the BNP and their odious leader Nick Griffin was undoubtedly one of the highlights of 2010. Join our Hopemas party to celebrate this victory. 

Our Hopemas party is support of Hope not Hate and generously supported by the PCS trade union. A seasonal night out of ideas and entertainment featuring the superb poetry of  Lemn Sissay . Performing a special version of her hit Edinburgh show 'Afroblighty' (on nationwide tour in 2011) the supremely talented comic Andi Osho. Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2010 award winners, the hilarious hip comedy improv of Abandoman. And filling the dancefloor into the early hours, music from the Melstars sound system. With contributions from Zaiba Malik author of the August R4 book of the week We are a Muslim,Please,  Nick Lowles, editor of  Searchlight magazine, Owen Hatherley author of the recently published book A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain, PCS National Executive Member Zita Holbourne, and Guardian columnist Aditya Chakrabortty.

At our usual party venue 'Offside' on City Road in Islington, completely refurbished and renamed the 'New Red Lion'. Tickets with or without supper.  And combine the night with your Philosophy Football Christmas shopping - your ticket is a £5 discount on shirts bought on the night!
