As the days get shorter and the nights drag on it’s easy to feel like summer was a million years ago. The fast approaching winter season makes you want to grab for the hot water bottle and curl up next to the fire, but it doesn’t have to be like this! Winter is a perfect time for wrapping up warm and exploring the slightly chilly outdoors and with so many weird and wonderful events happening there are a few reasons why staying inside should not be an option this winter.
On the 26th and 27th of November, Samnaun in Switzerland is transformed for the Santa Claus World Championships. Teams of Santa’s will hit the snow and battle it out in a series of Santa inspired events. The 100 wanna be Father Christmases will shimmy up chimneys and decorate gingerbread men all in the hope of winning €5000-worth of prizes.
However if watching grown men dressed as Santa sledging down a hill isn’t your thing the 27th of November is Prague’s FMX Gladiator Games. The unusual event which combines freestyle motorcross with theatre and choreography is bound to have you on the edge of your seat. With Prague hotels filling up to catch this event you will have to act quickly!
The War of the Worlds has enjoyed sell out tours in recent years and this years new production at the O2 Arena on the 12th of December, shouldn’t disappoint. If a star cast, including Atomic Kittens Liz McClarnon, Moody Blues’ Justin Hayward and Jason Donovan isn’t enough to get you on the edge of your seat, then surely a 35-foot Martian Fighting Machine that shoots Heat Rays into the audience will?!
What do you think are there any other unusual events are going on near you?
