Midwinter Dash & Party 2PM

For the second year running, celebrate the longest night* and run-up to the solstice** with a chilling dash from the Turkish Bath in Babbage Square to the Sauna at Brunel Hall. Those willing to brave the winter chill should gather in the hotrooms with their bathing dress and sturdy shoes! The runners will then make their way across square and Academy to the welcome heat of the Brunel Hall sauna. The establishment takes no responsibility for accidental canal trips or snowballs to the neck experienced during the race.

Following the race, partygoers and the surviving victorious runners will be treated to the DJ-ing skills of Mr Victor Mornington, and a mid-winter’s party at Brunel Hall to dance the long night away.  Come and see off the winter chill with good music and Brunel Hall’s famous sauna.


* For GMT values of ‘night’.

** The solstice itself falls at 05:30 GMT on the 22nd, when this typist hopes to be sound sleep ;)

    This sounds SO fun, and uniquely different from other events! I will try my utmost best to come freeze my tuckus off in fine company.
