Hazel and Annabel have been planning the first Julip Christmas Party!
As you all know, Annabel is rather keen on her dioramas, so we have many themes for the Christmas party classes. Section 1 includes the ‘Scene’ Classes, Section 2 Ridden and Inhand Classes and Section 3 Christmas Fun Classes. We have a few themes for the ridden and inhand classes too, especially ‘From Russia with Love’; we’re thinking snowy backdrops, Cossack hats, Faberge, Anastasia, opulence! This day will be all about having fun, playing games, eating, drinking (non-alcohol if you’re driving), singing and making sure you and your Julips have the best Christmas day out ever!
‘Twas the night before Christmas’
Boxing Day B movie (Hazel’s favourite is ‘The Black Stallion’ and Annabel’s ‘Towering Inferno’ and ‘The Poseidon Adventure’!
For the ridden classes:
‘From Russia With Love’
Olympia (encompassing anything from the show)
Boxing Day Ride
Best dressed Christmas Julip
Santa’s little helper
Christmas pudding (blacks/browns)
Mistletoe (white/pale Julips)
Frost (dappled and other grey)
Brandy Butter (cream/palomino)
Holly Berry (chestnuts)
Christmas Tree (patches)
Starry Skies (spotteds)
On top of all that fun, we are also having a PYO Christmas foal (provided by Julip, and it certainly will be a one off, expect plenty of glitter!), we are also giving a prize to the most tasteless Christmas accessory worn on the day, a pass the parcel with a super surprise in every layer, Christmas charades, and we are also asking you to provide a hand-made Christmas decoration for our tree! For those who arrive the night before, we’ll be organising our usual supper in the Fox and Hounds, where we will also be making paper chains to decorate to hall the next morning. The show starts at 10:00am, but we’ll open the doors at 9:00am, and those that come early will be obliged to eat mince pies, sing carols and decorate the tree! As ever, a Christmassy lunch and refreshments will be provided. In case you hadn’t realised, we can’t wait! All you have to do is get here.
Silly Santa hats most welcome!
Hazel is back next weekend, so more updates and a full schedule with times to follow! Email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime with any questions, and please don’t forget to let us know you are coming! We’ll need to book supper at the Fox and Hounds early so please email asap if you would like to come.
Although this is a Julip Show, we would welcome all family and friends that would like to join us. The more the merrier!!
