This year's Christmas party will be on 9th December 2017 at 7:30pm in DeBouviour near Haggeston station (N1 4DA)

Like previous year's it will feature a sit down dinner, singing, dancing and festive merriment

Dress fancy but no need for black tie (note: dress fancy - not fancy dress). Other halves, quarters, and thirds, all welcome. Tickets are available from your team captains, and from social@hackneyrfc.co.uk, and cost £28. Your ticket is not confirmed until you pay. Send dietary requirements to social@hackneyrfc.co.uk no later than 1 December. Volunteers to set up and clean up will reap their rewards in this life or the next.
