TUE 1ST DEC

WORLD AIDS DAY

It’s December and it’s party season! The countdown to Christmas can officially begin (for those who have been posting ‘237 days ‘til chrimbo’ type messages, you will be pleased to know that December 1st is the day I stop telling you to shut up) and this month our stockings are filled with more festive activity than you can shake a tinsel covered stick at. First up on December 1st we take time to mark the annual World AIDS day with a candlelight vigil at the Peace Gardens, which this year is followed by a film screening at the newly opened LGBT Sheffield drop-in centre (open all day every Tuesday – pop in for coffee and cake or check out their Facebook page for their full schedule). Then head to the also newly opened OMG bar on West Street for the Chicks With Decks after-party fundraiser. If you think Christmas is all about emptying your purses (I’m seriously considering mortgaging my house this year) then fear not as Troubadours of the Revolution return on 5th December with their anti-capitalist Christmas event – an evening full of music, poetry and comedy. There is a suggested donation but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds and you can take your own drink if you wish. For those of you who, like me, have a life that is plagued by the important choices of whether you prefer neon or glitter then fear not: we have both. In the neon corner on Friday 11th December, we’re back at OMG for their Art Rave with special guest

Donna Marie as Lady Gaga. The whole venue will be getting a neon makeover for the occasion and there will be body painting on the night ensuring that the attendees are as colourful as the décor. Moving onwards, Friday 18th will see legendary Christmas party Climax Glitterball return at Sheffield University featuring karaoke, glittery giveaways and fake snow – nights out don’t get more festive than this! Following the sell-out success of their first event, Cabaret Re:Voltaire is back at the Moor Theatre Deli on Saturday 19th featuring performances from Anna Phylactic, Violet Blonde, Vermilda Hyde, Penny Slotz, Mina Business and the soon-to-be-traditional debutante slot filled by Anna Kissed. There will be party games and gifts, Chris Saunders will be taking more amazing photographs, plus the booze is cheap – what more could you want! (Note: I’d recommend getting advance tickets for this one as it is almost guaranteed to sell out). And don’t forget, if the one-off special events are not enough, Dempseys, big believers in the idea that bank holidays are for banks, open 365 days a year – yes Christmas Day included! There will be various festive events throughout the month, but don’t miss their annual New Year’s Eve all-nighter, which is undoubtedly their biggest night of the year running from 6pm ‘til 6am for all you 24 hour party people. Right. I’m off to pour myself another glass of mulled wine. Until next time, love and tinsel!
