Imagine a massive crowd of 500-ish people, dressed as Santa, playing christmas music and skating through the streets of central London. That’s pretty much all there is to it, but there’s just something so awesome about hijacking the roads. I went along with a handful of people from Imperial SkateSoc, who didn’t know I was coming so I was rather lucky to find them right at the beginning.
I also missed the fact that you could actually buy a santa suit from the people organising it. I’m hence dressed in rainbows and tinsel, as you can see in the video at around 5.30.
