CITY CHRISTMAS NOT THE OFFICE PARTY Abandon the turkey dinner and disco in favour of some festive fun CLUECAPERS Put your problem-solving skills to the test with an escape room challenge at ClueCapers, next to the King Alfred statue. Groups of up to 17 are sent on simultaneous adventures in the curious worlds of Winchintzy and Winchokey – solving puzzles and challenges together before time runs out. The experience is great for revealing hidden talents and giving everyone plenty to talk about afterwards. 01962 870793 | WINE TASTING AT THE BLACK BOTTLE Charge up the wine-tasting cards at The Black Bottle on Bridge Street and enjoy an evening of guzzling from vending machines that serve 32 different wines by the glass or provide tasters of 25ml. Combine cheese with wine or book a guided tasting with a pro. 01962 621563 | THE SNOW BALL Book in for a cheeky evening of burlesque and cabaret at The Snow Ball with international seductress Ivy Paige and burlesque showgirl Jolie Papillon at Guildhall on 8 December. Expect risqué musical comedy from vaudevillian Desmond O’Connor, retro striptease from Scarlett Daggers and circus tricks from hula-hooping royalty Daisy Black plus an after-party in the Wintonian Bar. 01962 840820 | IN THE SWING Head to Winchester Golf Academy, where group competitions can be organised by the PGA pros on the driving range before a buffet or a sit-down meal at The Little Kitchen Bistro.
