London’s favourite Crucifixion themed fancy dress pub crawl!
Christathon is Kooba Radio’s annual Crucifixion themed fancy dress pub crawl event! A tradition established in the year of our lord 2008.
Join us as we dress up as Jesus and take a little stroll around London, visiting some biblically named pubs along the way.
Each year has seen an increase in the number of Jesi (the plural of Jesus) in attendance.
Positive media coverage has also increased with 2011 and 2012's Christathons being featured in TimeOut's top 5 picks for the Easter weekend.
To raise a little cash for the British Red Cross, meet new people, and to have a good old-fashioned fun time!
Where and When
Christathon takes place in London. We have a well established route that takes in various biblically named pubs in the capital.
It all starts at The Trinity pub (www.thetrinity.co.uk)
If you join us later in the day you can call the Christathon hotline on 07905 881 939, or track us by following our twitter feed @koobaradio.
Everyone is invited! Just get your Christ costume ready! Christathon is FUN and well loved. Everyone that we encounter along the way always sees the fun side and often joins in with the merriment. People are often astounded by a group of Jesuses raising money for a good cause but never offended.
What to wear
Dress as Jesus. Christ costumes can be purchases very cheaply online. There are some good ones available from joke.co.uk and play.com.
Or why not make your own. Here's your check list...
• White tunic
• Long wig
• Beard (real or false)
• Red sash
• Crown of thorns
Over the years we have seen a Roman centurion, a few Roman womenfolk, at least one Mother Mary (complete with baby bump) and even a Judas! Any Crucifixion themed characters are most welcome.
We also encourage “themed” Jesuses such as Zombie Christ, Elvis Christ and so on. Let your imagination run wild!
