Celebrate the festive season with the WSC team

About this event

The WSC office party used to mean a quick meal at a Vietnamese in Shoreditch and then a few pints in the local pub. We’re changing things up this year and inviting you all along. With no World Cup game on Thursday, December 8, why not celebrate the downtime with us? Expect a fun evening of special guests, quizzes and prizes. Will it be better than a Big Match Christmas Special? No promises – only those who turn up will find out.

You will also get a chance to see the touring WSC Photos exhibition, showcasing some of the best images from the magazine’s team of photographers: Colin McPherson, Paul Thompson and Simon Gill. The three photographers have spent decades documenting UK football culture at all levels, and many of the images they have selected have already been inducted into the prestigious Martin Parr Foundation gallery in Bristol. Martin Parr says:

"We are delighted to accept the work of WSC’s photography team into the MPF collection. Paul Thompson, Colin McPherson and Simon Gill have shot the smaller football clubs of the UK and the images show the delights and charms of the lower leagues, the dedicated fans and often run-down grounds. They provide an essential service and the very opposite of the corporate Premier League.”

As if that isn’t enough, there will be stalls from WSC and Dulwich Hamlet FC, and the bar will be open. What more could you want?

Members of the WSC Supporters’ Club get priority access to tickets for WSC Live events and those in Tier 3 or higher will always pay early bird prices – find out more information and join for as little as £2 per month on our Patreon page.

This event will not be streamed live via Zoom or any other online platform, so the only way to see it is in person. Tickets are extremely limited and once they are gone there will be no more put on sale, so get in quick.
