“Jamie stayed and explored Peterborough, which has a Waitrose. He can’t resist a good Waitrose”
It’s that time of year when people are showered with round robin letters that display all manner of smugness, boasting and oversharing. A same sexed married couple receive an abundance of letters from ‘friends’ and acquaintances documenting in mundane and intricate detail the year that has past.
Come and join us in the wearing of ill-fitting party hats and garish Christmas jumpers while they bring to life these warm, witty and sometimes weird look at a collection of real life Christmas round robin letters. Think Mrs Merton meets Talking Heads.
