Should I bring anything?
This is a Christmas party and we welcome sharing, please feel free to bring something extra for the group, either food or drink. We don't have onsite cooking facilities though, just a microwave. We're going to provide a lot of F&B included but if you would like to contribute a bottle of wine, case of beer, or a cake or pie, we thank you for getting into the Christmas spirit!
