‘Tis the season to be jolly, festive and full of Colours. That’s what the newly renovated venue in good old Ho-Ho-Hoxton is offering this December.
We’ve been bashing hips with the guys who run the venue and have picked our favourite five events coming up that you most definitely shouldn’t miss. We will also be at a few, so if you see any flamboyant, bouncy and chatty press members, feel free to come and say hello (we only bite on Wednesdays).
Monday 9th December
Celebrate sexuality at this alternative Christmas market hosted by Sex+Zine, with a selection of fun gifts made locally that spice up the holidays, promoting sex positivity and feminism for all! Treat yourself or someone special – or even infuse some naughtiness in your Secret Santa at work! The market will include a social with friendly, likeminded people from the community celebrating another incredible year sharing real stories and rewriting narratives about sex.
Saturday 14th December
Ready to ring in a new decade of debauchery, Daddy Issues are back for a New Year’s Eve party like no other! With free entry for Clubkids and those dressed in Drag, the night is set to bring two rooms of pure unadulterated and all inclusive Queer fun, with Sierra-Leone born artist KABBA (formerly known as A*M*E) and RuPaul Drag Race UK royalty ‘The Brit Crew’ as extra special guests. Come to daddy and let’s dance those 2019 issues away!
Sunday 15th December One for the whole family, it’s time to get into the groove with the Raver Tots Xmas Party! Packed full of fun for parents and kids to dance away together, with parachutes, confetti, face painting, glitter and more, expect this special edition to be an unmissable Crimbo corker. There’ll be two sessions throughout the day, an original Raver Tots and the second headlined by the spinning masters at Reggae Roast, for a Reggae Tots special! With a range of family-friendly activities across Colours Hoxton, expect smiles to be larger than ever.

Bringing the good vibrations to Colours for one last 2019 knees up, we’re delighted to have the party-starters from Deaf Rave taking over all three rooms for a New Year’s Eve spectacular! Although we’ll be ringing in the new year with friends from across the international D/deaf and disabled communities, everybody is welcome. Plus some of the proceeds raised by ticket sales will be donated to the British Society for Mental Health and Deafness – so it’s partying for a good cause!
As if you need any more reason to check out Colours, but we just gave you five any way. Get yourself there or miss out on some seriously fun events!!
